In February 2020, we witnessed a global retreat of patients from health care settings due to facility closures and fears of contracting the COVID-19 virus. Consequently, during the past 18 months, men’s health screenings have been less available for those in need of annual screenings, as well as those experiencing early symptoms of potential prostate disease. Nurses are amongst the most trusted health leaders (Godde 2021), and as we emerge from this crisis, now is the time for us to engage in out-of-the-box thinking that will address this critical need. Faith-based communities provide ideal locations to host educational programs about men’s health screenings that will effectively reach members who are reluctant to return to healthcare settings.
