Advances in cancer screening and treatment have led to improved 5-year survival rates, particularly among prostate cancer survivors. Little is known about the health behaviours of Australian cancer survivors. Health behaviours are activities undertaken by an individual for the purpose of promoting, protecting or maintaining health.
This study aims to learn more about the health issues, health behaviours, psychological well-being, attitude and health literacy of Australian cancer survivors, including prostate cancer survivors.
Participants will be asked to complete one survey, which will take approximately 30 minutes. The survey includes questions about their current level of health, lifestyle, understanding of cancer-specific information and thoughts on genetic testing. Participants will also be asked to provide information about themselves (including their age, postcode, etc), which will help to summarise the information collected. All information provided will be kept strictly confidential – and will be de-identified in all analyses.
Ethics approval has been granted through the University of New South Wales Human Research Ethics Committee.
