“Active surveillance … how to do it right”


Many readers, and particularly many support group leaders and other educators, may want to read and retain a copy of this very recent article in Oncology.

The article is written by Garisto and Klotz. It’s full title is actually “Active surveillance for prostate cancer; how to do it right.” It is a complete, if brief, current review of the evaluation, selection, and management of patients who are appropriate for initial management on active surveillance. And the full text is freely available on line.

  1. This is a wonderful paper. (I read it all.) I’m thinking about the best way to communicate it in the education and support group setting.

  2. My contribution in this regard has been available for quite some time on my website http://www.theprostateadvocate.com under the menu word “Observations” and subject alphabetically “Active Surveillance.” Direct access http://tinyurl.com/3r7mm8m
