PCF launches free prostate cancer app

Australian men are now able to access prostate cancer information on their smartphone, with Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) launching its free ProstateApp this week.

ProstateApp is the first app developed in order to help men and their families through the emotional, psychological and physical trials of prostate cancer.

The app provides an easily accessible, comprehensive new resource for prostate cancer sufferers and features practical tools including activities on decision making, guides on self-care and links to relevant organisations. It also includes a range of support content, including inspirational quotes, daily motivational material and videos of people relating their own experiences.

“We are now relying on smart devices more than ever, so this app will ensure that men can access credible and balanced information about prostate cancer at their convenience,” said PCFA Associate Professor Anthony Lowe. “Our main goal is to ensure all men have easy-to-access and helpful information, especially during the most difficult times such as after a diagnosis. We will continue to find different ways to offer Australian men and their families support so no one is left in the dark.”

ProstateApp is available to Apple users through the Appstore
