It has been reviewed internally by the Screening and Immunisation Committee of Cancer Council Australia and externally by Professor Henry Woo (Urological Surgeon) and Professor Ian Davis (Medical Oncologist/Prostate cancer researcher). It has been approved by Cancer Council’s principal Public Health Committee.
