The toolkit aims to help men gain an understanding about potential warning signs and arm people with the relevant facts.
Like most charities Prostate Cymru has been hit hard by 2020 and not just financially, with awareness sessions and events being postponed or cancelled.
Wales' primary prostate health charity has responded to external factors with determination and a readiness to adapt.
Previously the Prostate Cymru awareness agenda has been heavily reliant on face-to-face sessions and talks taking place throughout Wales; activities that in the current climate are not possible.
Prostate Cymru have conducted a survey with 64 businesses around the nation that has led to the creation of an awareness toolkit, created with the responses in mind.
The awareness toolkit will equip your business with the appropriate tools to educate your staff on the risks of prostate disease whilst face-to-face awareness sessions are not possible.
The Prostate Cymru, awareness toolkit is offered at no cost and will be available for businesses virtually to help educate their staff on prostate disease and cancer.
The toolkit will include:
- A Prostate Health Awareness Presentation
- Social Media Headers
- Social Media Content
- Still Images
- Various Awareness videos
Our 10-minute-long prostate health presentation included in the pack, is an efficient educational tool that will help both men and women understand the dangers of prostate disease and prostate cancer.
Speaking about the awareness video, Prostate Cymru’s Specialist Nurse, Gaynor Newton, said,
“This video is a fantastic way to get the message across about the dangers of prostate disease and prostate cancer in a quick, informative way.”
“With 1 in 8 men in Wales being diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime, and 60% of men over 60 having an enlarged prostate, educating men in the workplace about their prostate health is so important.”
The social media content provided is easy to use, educational and available in a variety of dimensions to suit your business.
Prostate Cymru’s Owen Pugsley said,
“The awareness programme is an integral part of Prostate Cymru and Covid-19 has put a massive stress on spreading the word about prostate disease and prostate cancer. We have a fantastic awareness team consisting of seven presenters who have delivered over 1000 presentations to men and women in Wales.
This toolkit has been developed by Prostate Cymru to get the message out there and educate as many men as we can whilst they are working remotely.”
