On St Patricks Day Dr James Mackean presented at the MENS Health Conference, an event designed to educate GP’s on Men’s Health issues including emerging innovations and changes in treatments. Dr Mackean presented with the Urology Panel on ‘Improving Functional Outcomes for Men with Prostate Cancer’.
