Co-design of a prostate cancer support portal – BroSupPORT

Professor Sue Evans, School of Public Health and Preventative Medicine, Monash University

HELP DESIGN INFORMATION TO SUPPORT MEN AFTER PROSTATE CANCER TREATMENT

Monash University is investigating new ways to improve the experiences and outcomes of people affected by prostate cancer. Through a study funded by the Victorian Agency for Health Information (VAHI), we will be working with men affected by prostate cancer and those close to them, to design a supportive care website to help meet their needs. A web portal – called Bro SupPORT.

We invite you and your support person to attend up to six workshops to help us develop BroSupPORT.  You do not have to leave your home! You do need a computer and access to the Internet. You will ‘see’ other people on your computer through this videoconference.  We will help you get this set up. A $50 gift card will be provided for each participant per workshop attended.

Ethics approval has been granted by the Alfred Hospital Ethics Committee.

Who is this study for?

You may be eligible for this study if you:

  • Have been diagnosed with prostate cancer
  • Are a partner or family member of a man diagnosed with prostate cancer
  • Have access to a computer and the internet
