Reginald Tucker-Seeley, MA, ScM, ScD, concludes the program with advice for caregivers and patients with prostate cancer to maximize the benefit of treatment.

This is a synopsis of an Educated Patient Sound Bites series featuring Alicia Morgans, MD, MPH, of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute; Rashid K. Sayyid, MD, MSc, of the University of Toronto; and Reginald Tucker-Seeley, MA, ScM, ScD, of ZERO Prostate Cancer.

Dr Reginald Tucker-Seeley emphasizes utilizing the full healthcare team beyond just physicians, including nurses and social workers, to answer questions. Community organizations like ZERO also provide critical patient education and advocacy. He advises fully understanding the care journey ahead of time to avoid surprises. ZERO offers resources mapping out the prostate cancer process.

Dr Tucker-Seeley stresses no one should navigate a cancer diagnosis alone given its life-altering nature. Bringing someone to appointments allows a second set of ears, notetaking, and post-visit discussion to ensure comprehension, as the initial news can overwhelm patients.

In closing, Dr Tucker-Seeley thanks viewers for learning about prostate cancer, hoping they found the patient education program informative.
