Supporting prostate cancer research

Psychometric evaluation of a new instrument developed to measure illness perceptions in young people who have a parent with cancer.

Ms Chloe Fletcher, Flinders University

Researchers at the Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer and CanTeen Australia have conducted a study that explores young people’s thoughts and feelings about their parent’s cancer. The findings of this research will help us to understand how young people cope with their parent’s cancer and develop better ways of supporting young people after their parent has been diagnosed with cancer.

Ethics approval was granted by the Flinders University Social and Behavioural Research Ethics Committee.
