WEBINAR - Role of physical activity in prostate cancer survivorship

Hear from the Leading Experts

A/Prof Justin Keogh
Associate Professor, Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine, Bond University.

Associate Professor Keogh is an exercise scientist whose research focuses on better understanding the relationship between muscle mass, strength and physical performance in athletes as well as older adults at risk of disability and poor health outcomes. A recent focus has been on the geriatric syndrome of sarcopenia, defined as a progressive loss of muscle mass, muscular strength and physical performance that is becoming increasingly prevalent in older adults in residential aged care as well as prostate cancer survivors on androgen deprivation therapy. Much of his current cancer research examines the determinants of physical activity and exercise from both the patient and health professional perspective. He is an Associate editor or editorial board member of multiple journals including the Journal of Cancer Survivorship and Oncology Nursing Forumin.

Justin will be speaking about “the determinants of physical activity and exercise for men with prostate cancer”

Dr Lynnette Jones
Senior Lecturer in Physical Activity and Health at the School of Physical Education, Sport and Exercise Sciences,University of Otago.

Dr Jones's research area is in Exercise Oncology, with a specific focus on breast cancer. Her focus is research in exercise and vascular health in survivors of breast and prostate cancer. In 2009, she established the Exercise Training Beyond Breast Cancer (EXPINKT™) programme. This programme delivers individualised exercise prescriptions to individuals diagnosed with primary breast cancer.

Current and recent research projects involve ongoing quantitative and qualitative evaluation of the EXPINKT™ programme, investigation of the impact of chemotherapy on weight gain and metabolic syndrome in women diagnosed with primary breast cancer, and the use of circuit resistance training for patients and survivors of breast cancer. Dr Jones has established a significant collaboration with the Dunedin Hospital Oncology Department. Dr Jones has expertise in coordinating exercise research with interventions looking at the effects and benefits of exercise in various sectors of the population, including spinal injured males, overweight and obese women, elderly individuals, and pre-diabetic women.

Lynette will be speaking about “Addressing the symptoms and side effects in relation to exercise benefits”

Dr Joseph Ischia

Dr Joseph Ischia is a surgical uro-oncologist in general urology and specialising in the management of urological cancers. He is also involved in Urological research in prostate, bladder and kidney cancer with a research position at University of Melbourne.

Joseph completed a PhD at the University of Melbourne in the field of molecular biology of urological cancers. After successfully completing Urology training in Australia, I undertook a further two-year research and clinical fellowship in advanced urological cancers with training in Robotic surgery at the Vancouver Prostate Centre in Vancouver, Canada. He has published and presented my translational and clinical research at both local and international meetings. Also, he has multiple leadership roles in Australian urological circles being on the Victorian committee for the Urological Society of Australia and New Zealand, as well scientific organizing committees for several National and International urological meetings.

Joseph will talk a little bit about prostate cancer, common treatment approaches, side-effects and some of the benefits he has observed for his patients with exercise and some of the challenges he faces to ensure his patients are sufficiently physically active during and after their treatments.
