Abstract

Current systematic reviews on prostate cancer survivorship cover a range of topics. These include physical limitations, cognitive limitations, depression/anxiety, sleep-problems, fatigue, pain, and sexual dysfunction [1]. This highlighted a need to improve long term patient outcomes. A more recent review emphasised patient empowerment in healthcare during this time [2].
