TrueNTH Telehealth: Breaking Down Borders

Author: Movember

With the help of TrueNTH Telehealth, men across rural locations in Australia are getting more support than ever from their care coordinators. And it’s all done by phone. TrueNTH – the most significant project worldwide dedicated to improving the quality of life for men diagnosed with prostate cancer – is using the power of telehealth to break down borders for all men across Australia. No matter the location, TrueNTH Telehealth provides men with care and support when they need it most.

How does it work?

TrueNTH Telehealth allows men with prostate cancer to schedule calls with their care coordinators – allowing them to call for a simple check-in whenever, wherever. This initiative increases the amount of communication men have with care coordinators, and therefore, the amount of support they receive.

How critical are care coordinators?

Care coordinators are a vital part of this project. Care coordinators are one-on-one support workers, often times prostate cancer nurses, who help men navigate their prostate cancer journey. From discussing their options, offering advice, or just being a shoulder to lean on, these workers become the “rock” for many men with prostate cancer. Seeing them through from diagnosis to treatment, and beyond.

The result?

Men with prostate cancer are encouraged to do one of the most important things in getting through this phase of their lives: talk.

Breaking down barriers while opening up communication is no easy feat. But TrueNTH Telehealth delivers just that, with the touch of a button.
