Supporting prostate cancer research

Prostate cancer: Lift and hope in men, women and couples

Laurence Lepherd and Coralie Graham, University of Southern Queensland (USQ)

This study investigated the way in which men and women associated directly with prostate cancer cope positively with their prostate cancer journeys.

Men and women who are members of support groups strive to gain mutual support through their interaction with each other, and their interaction with qualified and experienced professionals who work with them as part of support group activities. By documenting the stories of the ways in which support group members have found lift and hope during their respective journeys, it is anticipated that other people affected by prostate cancer will receive encouragement by seeing that it is possible to be positive during their own journey.

The study has been approved by the Ethics Committee of the University of Southern Queensland.

This study is no longer recruiting participants.
