Supporting prostate cancer research

Completed Research

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

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.


A randomised controlled trial of iCanADAPT, an internet Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (iCBT) program for the treatment of depression and anxiety in early-stage cancer patients and cancer survivors.

This trial will test an internet-based program (iCanADAPT Early) for the treatment of depression and anxiety in early stage cancer patients and cancer survivors.


IMPACT: The efficacy of exercise training and nutritional supplementation on musculo-skeletal and cardio-metabolic health in men living with prostate cancer treated with androgen deprivation therapy.

This study examines the health benefits of a combined exercise training and nutritional supplementation program for men treated with hormone therapy (or androgen deprivation therapy) for prostate cancer.


Investigating treatment preferences of patients with advanced and metastatic prostate cancer.

Important decisions regarding treatment must be made by men with prostate cancer. A treatment decision is usually made by these men and their physicians.


Do Australian men with prostate cancer have access to well-designed websites with quality content information to encourage physical exercise?

This research project aims to identify the physical activity websites that men with prostate cancer are likely to find online. Their quality and appropriateness for men with prostate cancer will be assessed. This information may then be used to inform referral practices to physical activity websites and/or the development of more appropriate services.


Applicability of guidelines for management of cancer-related fatigue: a Delphi study

Fatigue, or extreme tiredness, is a common and difficult side effect of prostate cancer treatment for some men. This study will ask whether Canadian guidelines that have been developed to help people manage cancer-related fatigue could be adapted so they are appropriate for use in Australia.


Sexual Wellbeing and Quality of Life after Prostate Cancer for Gay and Bisexual Men and their Partners

It is estimated that 600 – 1000 Australian gay men are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year. This study aims to examine the psychological burden of changes to sexual wellbeing, sexual identity and intimate relationships in gay and bisexual men with prostate cancer and their male partners.
