Current Clinical Studies

Below is a list of the current Clinical studies at Calgary Prostate Cancer Centre (PCC):

Peak-RP Study – Participating in Tai Chi to Reduce Anxiety and Keep up Physical Function: The purpose of this study is to test an online Tai Chi intervention as a prehabilitation model to prepare prostate cancer patients and their caregivers for radical prostatectomy. This research will help us determine how to deliver an online-based Tai Chi intervention for prostate cancer patients, to understand the effects of a Tai Chi intervention on anxiety leading up to the surgery, on physical function and on patient reported outcomes before and after surgery.
