Purpose of Study 

TrueNTH (True North) Peer Navigation is a new study that puts trained prostate cancer survivors and caregivers in touch with patients and caregivers looking for support. Peer navigators will help prostate cancer patients and caregivers navigate their journey through cancer care, from the point of diagnosis to treatment and beyond and will provide emotional, practical, and informational support. This work was awarded by Prostate Cancer Canada and is proudly funded by the Movember Foundation.
