Welcome to TEMPO! A Tailored, Web-based, Self-Management Program for men living with prostate cancer and their partners and family members.

TEMPO stands for Tailored, wEb-based, self-Management PrOgram. TEMPO, as a “self-management” program, helps you to actively look after your health and well-being.

TEMPO was designed by a team of clinicians and researchers across Canada, in partnership with Prostate Cancer Canada. For more information about our team of experts click on the “About Us” link below.

TEMPO is free, private, and available online. TEMPO is designed to give you the best and most up-to-date information to manage the challenges often experienced while living with or supporting someone with prostate cancer.

How can TEMPO help?

Many websites can offer you medical information about prostate cancer, BUT where do you learn how to cope with the physical and emotional challenges of living with or supporting someone with prostate cancer?

This is where TEMPO comes in. TEMPO is designed, using self-management principles, to support you as an individual and as a team to:

  • Find out about the challenges you are experiencing that might impact on your physical and emotional health.
  • Decide which challenges are most important to you.
  • Set goals and action plans to make a difference in the way you cope with these challenges.
  • Strengthen your supports and use proven tools and strategies to achieve your goals and action plans.

TEMPO uses a sailing journey metaphor throughout each module. TEMPO will ask you to imagine yourselves as the co-captains of a sailboat. You will be working together to sail from where you are now, towards where you want to be in your ability to cope with the physical and emotional challenges of living with or supporting someone with prostate cancer.

Who should use TEMPO?

TEMPO is designed for men with prostate cancer and their partners or family members.

Why should we use TEMPO?

TEMPO provides the latest information and practical suggestions to help you manage common challenges or concerns experienced by people living with prostate cancer and by those supporting someone with prostate cancer.

What does TEMPO involve?

TEMPO involves setting goals together and working as “co-captains” to achieve these goals. Achieving common goals can take time, and unexpected events or busy daily schedules can impact on how quickly you achieve your goals. To allow for flexibility, TEMPO has been designed to take about 10 weeks to complete and can be used anywhere there is an internet connection.
