Workshop topics addressed managing symptoms, such as sexual functioning, incontinence, hot flashes, and bone health; as well as maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Additionally there was a workshop to help patients and their loved ones deal with the financial concerns that often accompany prostate cancer. For long term survivors, information regarding recurrence, late-effects of cancer, second cancers and healthy living were addressed.
