WHY TRUST IT?
The SHAReClinic was designed and developed by a multi-disciplinary team of healthcare experts from across Canada to fill the gap in sexual health support that exists for patients with prostate cancer and their partners.
There are currently very few clinics in Canada that offer care specific to the sexual health needs of prostate cancer patients. The SHAReClinic is an online clinic, accessible to anyone with access to the internet. You can now attend a premier hospital clinic without the travel, parking fees, or clinic wait-times associated with hospital clinic visits.
WHO IS IT FOR?
The True North SHAReClinic is available to men living in Canada who are referred by their prostate cancer physician.
Men who are married or in a romantic relationship are highly encouraged to participate in the clinic together with their partners.
The True North SHAReClinic is for men who:
- Have received surgery or radiation therapy for their prostate cancer.
- Prefer a convenient way of receiving sexual health support from the comfort of their home.
- Want to feel empowered to receive and explore rehabilitation support at their own pace.
