Supporting prostate cancer research

Cancer-related follow-up care survey for cancer survivors

Prof Richard Cohn at the University of New South Wales.

It is important for cancer survivors to look after their health in the months and years following their treatment for cancer. During this time, many cancer survivors benefit from information and support across a range of areas. We would like to learn more about your experience with follow-up care, particularly regarding the information you have received about the care you need in the future. We hope to use this information to understand what services cancer survivors would like to be made available to them, and how services for future survivors could be improved.

If you decide to take part in the study, please read the Participant Information Sheet carefully. We will ask you to complete an online survey. The survey will ask you questions about your cancer and its treatment, your cancer-related follow-up care and your experiences with survivorship care plans and treatment summaries. It should take approximately 20 minutes.

Ethics approval has been granted by University of New South Wales Human Research Ethics Committee.
