TrueNTH, an initiative of the Movember Foundation and supported by Prostate Cancer Canada, is developing, piloting, and evaluating innovative projects across Canada to make positive changes for prostate cancer survivors at all points of their cancer journey. Healthcare Human Factors was entrusted to spearhead the design and workflow of three such platforms:
- SHAReClinic is a sexual health rehabilitation eClinic that allows the prostate cancer patient and his partner to obtain personalized education and care to restore sexual health. The patient and his partner is matched with a health coach who can provide tailored support and guidance along the recovery pathway.
- Peer Navigation matches the prostate cancer patient, and his partner or caregiver, with a trained prostate cancer survivor (called a Peer Navigator). The Peer Navigator is there to support and guide the prostate cancer patient (and his partner or caregiver) throughout the prostate cancer experience.
- ASSIST is a platform that provides directed online content and resources customized for the prostate cancer patient at specific points of his journey, so that he can feel confident to manage and make informed decisions about his care and treatment.
Our Human Factors Designer, Jason Luk, joined the project team soon after he started at Healthcare Human Factors. Through this experience, he gained fresh perspectives on what it is like to work at the frontlines of healthcare.
