Kelowna PCSC Program
In April 2017, the Kelowna PCSC Program was initiated at BC Cancer – Kelowna, located at 399 Royal Avenue. With the generous support of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of BC and the Specialists Services Committee, a coordinator was hired to implement the program for Kelowna. Under the guidance of Radiation Oncologist and Site Lead Dr. Juanita Crook, the team in Kelowna began with the delivery of PCSC Module 1. These sessions continue to be held on a monthly basis in Kelowna.
In an effort to address the geographical diversity of patients seen at BC Cancer- Kelowna, the PCSC program was expanded to offer Module 1 sessions in Kamloops, BC. In partnership with Interior Health and the local Urologists, Module 1 sessions are held periodically at the Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, BC.
The key focus of 2018 and 2019 was the comprehensive expansion and implementation of the remaining 5 modules of the PCSC Program in Kelowna.
