In this ANZUNS webinar, we will explore how our pharmacy colleagues can play a vital role in educating prostate cancer patients and their families about androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) through the MENtor program. Additionally, we will discuss the invaluable support an exercise physiologist can provide in helping men on ADT maintain their health by staying active through a guided exercise physiology program.
In collaboration with AstraZeneca, please join us in this webinar to gain insights into improving the well-being and survivorship of prostate cancer patients. Don't miss out on this opportunity to learn about the important contributions of healthcare professionals in the journey of prostate cancer survivors and their families.
This webinar will be moderated by Karina So, Urology Nurse Practitioner and the Vice Chair of the NSW-ACT Section.

Founder, Prostate Rehabilitation Exercise Program (PREP)
Heath Prentice has designed the Prostate Exercise Rehabilitation Program to help men with prostate cancer prevent and recover from many symptoms of prostate cancer treatments. Heath is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) and completed an undergraduate degree in Science, Exercise and Health Science at the University of Western Australia. Once completing his undergraduate degree Heath then chose to undertake a Graduate Diploma in Exercise Rehabilitation at the University of Western Australia to become an AEP.
Upon graduating Heath began working at PROST! Men's Health Exercise for Prostate Cancer, where he has been the head Exercise Physiologist since 2012. Working in the face-to-face delivery of exercise for men with prostate cancer has given Heath a profound understanding of the side effects of all prostate cancer treatments and the best exercises to help combat side effects such as incontinence, erectile dysfunction, fatigue and loss of muscle mass.
Through PROST! Heath has developed detailed knowledge of pelvic floor muscles and how to train them most effectively. Heath is also a certified Pilates instructor and has discovered that combining principles of Pilates with strength-based exercises can help men successfully engage the correct muscles and recover from prostate cancer side effects.
Having worked with dozens of men with prostate cancer over the years Heath would now like to share his knowledge and help as many men recover from prostate cancer as possible. He has seen the benefits of pelvic floor specific and generalized strength training firsthand and his vision is for every man with prostate cancer to engage in regular exercise that has been created specifically for them.
