Abstract

Currently 250,000 men are living with and beyond prostate cancer in the UK [1]. As the number of men being diagnosed with prostate cancer continues to increase, the number of men set to deal with the physical and psychological consequences are set to rise [2]. Moreover, men have reported a range of unmet supportive care needs that contribute to a lack of person-centred care within current service provision in the UK [3]. Up until now, traditional follow-up of these men have been led by secondary care, however alternative models are now being considered [4-6] to optimise supportive care with demonstrated cost efficiency. To address areas of unmet supportive care needs in men affected by prostate cancer it is timely to take stock of the evidence.
