New health care delivery model for prostate cancer care results in better patient outcomes

A comprehensive, population-based regional health care management program for men with prostate cancer has led to improved outcomes, according to a study. “While prostate cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death among men, providing high quality care for men living with prostate cancer presents a challenge,” said the study’s lead author. “Increased survival rates have made prostate cancer similar to other chronic conditions, which means we need ongoing management strategies that span the natural history and clinical course of the disease.”
