Prostate Assessment Pathway

The Saskatchewan Prostate Assessment Pathway supports men who are going through assessment and possible diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. Urologists, oncologists, other health care providers and patients have been involved in developing the Photo of nurses.pathway, which provides information and support to patients and their families.

The pathway includes a standardized patient care process and development of prostate assessment centres in both Regina and Saskatoon. Primary care providers can refer patients directly to either centre, where nurse navigators will help support patients, provide information on tests and treatment options, and facilitate patients' journey from assessment to diagnosis and treatment.Nurse Navigators can also provide information over the phone.
