Health at Work
A diagnosis of male cancer can have a major impact on every aspect of a man’s life and their career. Our Male Cancer Information Nurse Specialists regularly provide training, health information and male cancer awareness sessions to businesses across the UK. Men’s reluctance to talk about their health is an ongoing challenge.
We can provide a 45-minute interactive presentation covering:
- Introduction to Orchid and male cancer in the UK.
- Signs and symptoms of all three male specific cancers.
- Risk factors.
- Emotional support and body image.
- Lifestyle and health tips.
- Resource packs: publications, factsheets and display materials.
Awareness Poster Campaigns
You can raise awareness of male cancer symptoms by running one of our poster campaigns. We have a selection of different posters that give an overview of all three male cancers. The messages on the posters highlight the obvious signs to look out for and what to do if you are concerned.
“We spend 60% of our waking hours at work, so we’ve been working with companies to provide information on key signs and symptoms of male cancer. The more we work with businesses, the greater the number of people we can reach and the greater number of lives we can save. Our programme is designed to benefit men and women.”
Rob Cornes, Orchid Male Cancer Nurse Specialist
“I sincerely would like to thank you for attending both site and office and giving two presentations. The workforce has really liked the presentations.”
“Indeed, there was very positive feedback and food for thought following your excellent presentation to both staff and beneficiaries.”
“Thank you for coming in to talk to us today about the importance of early detection. Importantly, all attendees have gone back to their teams, shared the leaflets provided at the session with their colleagues and talked about what they’ve learned today. I would highly recommend this talk to any company.”
