Summary of project
Approximately 50% of men change their diets after being diagnosed with prostate cancer to promote general health. Discussions about nutrition are common between men and their healthcare team, however there is still some confusion about what the best nutrition advice is to help men manage the short-term and long-term side effects of ADT.
Researchers at Deakin University Institute for Physical Activity and Nutrition are seeking men with prostate cancer who are currently being treated with androgen deprivation therapy for longer than 3 months to complete a one-off online interview, lasting approximately 30-45 minutes.
The study will investigate the perception of and access to nutrition services during androgen deprivation therapy. The interview will be held on Zoom, a video-communication platform, that requires no downloads or installation and can be accessed on a computer or smart device over the internet.
The results of this study will provide important information to determine priority areas for nutrition support during androgen deprivation therapy and help advance future nutrition and dietetic research in prostate cancer.
Ethics approval has been granted by the Deakin University Human Research Ethics Committee.
