Supporting prostate cancer research

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

Dr Carol McKinstry, La Trobe Rural Health School Occupational Therapy Program.

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. The survey asks participants about their experiences of information and support received for cancer related fatigue, and opinions about some of the suggestions raised in previous surveys.

This study has ethics approval from the La Trobe University Science, Health and Engineering (SHE) College Human Ethics Sub-Committee (SHE CHESC).
