About the Webinar
Cancer survivors face many emotional, psychological and practical day-to-day demands on top of the physical impacts of the disease and its treatment. In 2018 it is estimated that 74,644 males will be diagnosed with cancer in Australia and as more people are surviving a cancer diagnosis the need to provide support is ever increasing. We will be discussing the psychological and social issues facing men in Australia including the cultural expectations affecting them.
