A Trainee Clinical Psychologist at the University of Oxford is running an online research study that aims to look into the psychological impacts of being diagnosed with, and treated for, prostate cancer. The aim of the study is to improve our understanding of how prostate cancer and treatment impacts upon mental health after treatment and how we might be able to better target psychological therapies designed to improve mental wellbeing and quality of life for those after treatment.
We are hoping to give as many men who may have received a diagnosis of prostate cancer and have opted to receive a treatment with curative intent the opportunity to contribute their perspectives to this research. The link below will take individuals who are interested in participating in a short online research study to the study website which provides all the details about the study and how to take part.
Participation in the study is completely voluntary and there is no obligation to do so. The study will be anonymous and it does not collect any personal identifiable data from participants. The study has received ethical approval from the University of Oxford (Ethical Approval Reference: R88678/RE001).
We would like to offer the opportunity for men involved in Kidderminster and Worcestershire Prostate Cancer Support Group to participate in the research if they choose to. Participating involves answering questions on an online survey and should take approximately 30 minutes. Survey link:
