PCRI maintains a knowledgeable Helpline staff, whose purpose is to help the patient understand his diagnosis and treatment options. PCRI’s Helpline facilitators are Nathan Roundy, a prostate cancer survivor; Jan Manarite, the wife of a prostate cancer patient; and Silvia Cooper, the daughter of a prostate cancer patient.
Helpline facilitators provide callers with articles and other educational materials and peer-reviewed medical literature from the PCRI archives.
The PCRI Helpline facilitators do not provide medical advice. Rather, their goal is to help the patient gain knowledge to empower him and his caregivers, and to promote better communication with his medical providers in the hopes of obtaining the best possible outcomes.
