A pan-European survey has revealed that only 14% of healthcare professionals feel sufficiently equipped to address prostate cancer patients’ quality-of-life issues.   Detailing the findings from a survey of 765 prostate cancer patients, 335 caregivers and 400 healthcare professionals across Europe, Prostate Cancer: Living, Not Just Surviving also states that for the patients who experience chronic physical effects from the disease, fatigue (66%) has the biggest negative impact compared to disability and pain (41% and 22% respectively), particularly in metastatic patients (93%) and patients on medication (83%).   The report can be viewed online at http://www.janssen-emea.com/hpc/reports/Living-prostate-cancer
