Special expert guest speaker


Well known Radiation Oncologist Dr James MacKean is today's special expert guest speaker.


 


Dr MacKean is a Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists, and a member of the Australian and New Zealand Faculty of Radiation Oncology Genito-Urinary Group. He is also Chair of the Australasian Brachytherapy Group MacKean, and a Radiation Oncologist at Premion at the Wesley Hospital in Brisbane and in Chermside.


 


Today he will address the use of radiation in advanced prostate cancer, and answer your questions.


 


Other updates 


Any man who wishes to update us on his progress is welcome to contribute here.


 


Formal end 


The Chair will declare the formal part of the teleconference closed at his discretion, perhaps around 11am. The teleconference lines will be kept open until at least 11:30 for anyone who wishes to continue discussions, update his health, or just chat. 


 


Informal chat 


Any topic you like - topics we didn't reach, something discussed earlier you wish to comment on, an update on your health, how your new boat is going, moaning about the weather, anything that you wish to say. 


 


Future phone-in support group meetings 


Teleconference meetings are held on the fourth Friday (NOT always the last Friday) of each month (except January, which is one week late) and December (which is one week early). So February may have 2 teleconferences - the delayed January teleconference, and the normal fourth week. In 2013 this means teleconferences on both 1 February and 22 February.

22 February 2013


22 March 2013 (not last Friday in month)
