The David and Jan Brandon Prostate Cancer Survivorship Program.

At the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center, our goal is to provide our patients with strategies to optimize their overall health and wellness - now and in the future. The David and Jan Brandon Prostate Cancer Survivorship Program is designed for men who have had prostate cancer.

Topics include the importance of urinaryand sexual rehabilitation and emotional support. Read/download the Prostate Cancer Survivorship transcript.

An overall goal of survivorship is to assist patients in learning more about the side-effects of their prostate cancer treatment and strategies to address these issues and concerns. In addition, this information aims to support the steps that can be taken to achieve a healthy lifestyle.

The program offers:

  • an individualized treatment plan of care, including:
    • Prostate cancer surveillance
    • Management of the side effects of treatment, including urinary incontinence and sexual dysfunction
    • Partners inclusion as important participants in the recovery of the quality of life after prostate cancer treatment
    • Management of partners’ menopausal issues as needed or requested
    • Healthy lifestyle support

Prostate Cancer Survivorship Resources

  • The individualized program provides access to:
    • Nutrition services
    • PsychOncology Clinic
    • Palliative Care Clinic
    • Complementary Therapies
    • Referral to other medical providers as needed

To ensure continuity of care, a treatment summary and survivorship care plan is sent following the visit to the patient, his primary care physician and the physician who referred the patient to this program. The patient will return to the care of his original oncology team should his PSA rise or other signs of prostate cancer recurrence appear. Additional prostate cancer treatment then becomes available.

In order to participate in the program, patients must be in the care of a Michigan Medicine urologic oncologist or midlevel provider.
