Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Prostate cancer remains a significant health concern worldwide, with its impact extending beyond initial diagnosis and treatment. The emphasis on improving the quality of life and survivorship for patients with prostate cancer has garnered increasing attention, necessitating a focused exploration of these crucial aspects. This Special Issue aims to address the pressing need for comprehensive research on the quality of life and survivorship in prostate cancer patients, recognizing the profound impact of these factors on individuals and society.

We will thoroughly investigate multiple dimensions, including treatment outcomes, psychological well-being, socioeconomic factors, and lifestyle interventions. By examining the current research status and emerging trends in this field, we aim to foster discussions that contribute to a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by prostate cancer survivors and the interventions that can enhance their overall quality of life.

We invite contributions that offer novel insights, empirical findings, and critical reviews to enrich our understanding and inform future directions in optimizing survivorship care for prostate cancer patients.

Dr. Gabriela Ilie
