Prostate Assessment Centre

Home / Clinical Support / Chronic Disease Programs / Prostate Assessment Centre

The Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region helps men and their families navigate the health care system and educate them about health issues that commonly affect men, such as prostate cancer.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among Canadian men, in fact one in eight men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. It is estimated that 690 new cases of prostate cancer were diagnosed in Saskatchewan in 2015 alone.  Men over the age of 40 are encouraged to visit their family doctor on a regular basis for testing, as early detection is key.

Prostate Assessment Centre

The Prostate Assessment Centre at the Pasqua Hospital launched in 2009 to serve patients being assessed for prostate cancer.  Enhancements to the Centre now include a pathway by which men have the option to be monitored directly at the Centre in order to increase efficiencies regarding diagnosis and treatment. A specially-trained Nurse Navigator provides education and support for men diagnosed with early-stage prostate cancer. The Prostate Pathway promotes access to information and objective advice so men and their families can make informed treatment choices in keeping with their values and priorities. This pathway helps ensure men get timely and appropriate care for the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer.

Prostate Assessment Pathway

Saskatchewan has a new pathway to assess and support men in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. Urologists, other health care providers and patients have been involved in developing of the pathway.
