While Eltham Prostate Cancer Information & Support Group meetings are casual, they usually follow a basic structure.

Our convener begins the meeting with introductions and a reminder of the group agreement.

We then conduct a ‘health round-robin’, where attendees can share or update the group on their current circumstances if they wish to.

There is no pressure to contribute.

The round-robin leads into any other topics that attendees may wish to discuss, or questions they may wish to ask.

We usually see around 8 people per meeting, most of whom are regular attendees.

Most people prefer to attend in person, but some attend via Zoom.

Occasionally, we will have a guest speaker, usually a medical professional, or a representative from the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.

The length of our meetings varies but is usually around an hour.

  • What we share in the group remains confidential. What is said in the group stays in the group.
  • Although we share our experiences and journeys we do not give or ask for medical advice.
  • We have the opportunity for equal airtime and the right to remain silent.
  • We respect each person’s opinion.
  • We have the right to ask questions and the right to refuse to answer.
  • We provide support to our members and their families throughout their prostate cancer journey.
  • If a member passes we show compassion and support to their family.
  • We participate in community events to bring about awareness of our Prostate Cancer Support Group and its benefits of attending.
  • We participate in some fundraising activities to cover the costs of our group and its promotion to the Community.
