Supporting prostate cancer research

Completed Research

The projects listed below are now complete and are no longer recruiting.

SafeHealthApps: Monitoring the safety of health apps.

Mobile apps are increasingly being used to engage consumers to participate in their healthcare. The number of health apps has soared in the past few years with around 165,000 currently available in the Apple iTunes and Android app stores.


Cancer-related follow-up care survey for cancer survivors

It is important for cancer survivors to look after their health in the months and years following their treatment for cancer. During this time, many cancer survivors benefit from information and support across a range of areas.


Development and usability testing of a web-based physical activity guidance tool for men with metastatic prostate cancer.

This research team is developing an interactive website designed to support men with metastatic prostate cancer by providing tailored exercise advice.


Evaluating health behaviours and beliefs in childhood cancer survivors, adult cancer survivors and healthy Australians.

Advances in cancer screening and treatment have led to improved 5-year survival rates, particularly among prostate cancer survivors. Little is known about the health behaviours of Australian cancer survivors.


Exploring men’s experiences and needs regarding vocational rehabilitation, work and retirement after prostate cancer diagnosis.

Previous research has found that returning to work after a cancer diagnosis can improve people’s quality of life and psychological wellbeing, while also lessening the economic burden associated with the diagnosis. However, there is limited understanding of the employment-related experiences and needs of men with prostate cancer.


The role of subjective cognition in the link between cancer and well-being.

This study investigated the impact of social and practical support, fatigue and job demand on returning to work following cancer. Your experiences will help us improve the lives of other people with cancer.


The Men and Sexual Health-Prostate Cancer (MaSH-PC) study

One in three men have concerns about their sexual health after prostate cancer treatment. Many men are reluctant to get help for their sexual concerns, and when they do, often men do not continue with treatment.


What do you NEED: Nutrition Engagement, and Expectations During Prostate Cancer Treatment.

Researchers at The School of Human Movement and Nutrition Sciences are seeking men with prostate cancer to complete a one-off questionnaire, taking approximately 20-30 minutes.


Can nutrition therapy with high intensity interval training improve cancer-related fatigue in men with prostate cancer on androgen deprivation therapy?

Cancer fatigue is one of the most prevalent, prolonged and distressing side effects of prostate cancer treatment with androgen deprivation therapy. Many men change their diet and exercise habits during and after treatment.


Rekindle: testing an online resource to promote sexual wellbeing for both patients and their partners

This study is designed to test the feasibility and the benefit of Rekindle, a new online resource that addresses sexual concerns for both cancer survivors and their partners.
