Men's Health Resource Centre

Men's Health Resource Centre

The Nursing in Practice Men’s Health Resource Centre aims to provide you with the latest news and clinical articles to help you identify and understand men’s health concerns, and related key topics and issues.

Although the life expectancy gap between the genders has narrowed, men are more likely to suffer ill health through smoking and drinking. They are less likely than women to visit a health professional, and tend to believe that poorer health is inevitable in older age. There is a need to encourage more men to seek medical help, particularly if they are suffering from symptoms of male cancer or heart disease.
