Supporting prostate cancer research

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

Professor Suzanne Chambers, Griffith University and Cancer Council Queensland.

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. There is little research to help us understand men’s concerns about their sexual health after prostate cancer.

Griffith University, Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, Cancer Council Queensland and our international partners from New Zealand, Ireland, and Canada, are working together to better understand men’s sexual concerns after prostate cancer treatment and how we can develop better ways to support men with prostate cancer in the future.

The Men and Sexual Health – Prostate Cancer Study is an online survey that will take approximately 30 to 40 minutes of your time. The survey asks about your sexual concerns, side effects after prostate cancer treatment, quality of life, and decisions to use services. In the survey we will ask your permission to contact you again to complete another survey in 6 months and 12 months so that we can understand if your sexual concerns and need for support services change over time.

Ethics approval has been granted by the Griffith University Human Research Ethics Committee.
