Welcome to the Healthcare Practitioner’s portal of aboutmen.ca. The goals of the Men’s Health Initiative of BC include delivering to you the tools necessary for efficient, comprehensive evaluation, education, and care of the male population in all decades of life. We are still in our early stages, but our goal for this section will be to identify clinical guidelines—some of these will be level 1 evidence-based, while others may more closely represent accepted standards of care or expert opinion. Also included are validated questionnaires and risk calculators for a variety of disease states that will help you assess your patient’s health situation and provide him with the tools to monitor his own progress.
The research site provides an opportunity to post your own research studies, investigate possible collaborations, review the latest results, and simply learn who else is “out there” pursuing a similar interest. Through modern networking technology we hope that this site will become an important communication vehicle to stimulate population-based, male-specific science.
The news and announcements section will contain details and discussion of recent major events in men’s health. We hope you will consider this new site as an opportunity for your own education as well as a chance to educate others. We hope to be inclusive so don’t hesitate to contact us.
