Supporting prostate cancer research

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

Dr Camille Short, Research Scientist at the Freemasons Foundation Centre for Men’s Health, School of Medicine, at the University of Adelaide. 

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.

Who can participate?

  • Australian residents who can read and write in English and have access to the internet
  • Need to have a prior diagnosis with prostate cancer that has not metastasised (spread)
  • Not appropriate for those undergoing palliative care

Ethics approval has been granted from the School of Psychology: Human Research Ethics Subcommittee of the University of Adelaide on 14 April 2016.
