Australian Prostate Cancer Research is calling for volunteers who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer or have a partner with prostate cancer to test a web-based, personalised prostate cancer support system.
A number of Australia's leading cancer organisations have developed a revolutionary online system to support men with prostate cancer. The site is called ‘PROSTMATE’ and provides men with prostate cancer and their families’ access to the latest research-validated information, personalised support and specialised programs. Users also have the opportunity to participate in research that will enhance their wellbeing and shape the future care of men with prostate cancer.
The need for this online intervention and support model was driven by men with prostate cancer who experienced limited support during this extremely difficult journey.
We are now seeking feedback to assist us in refining the system prior to the general public launch later this year.
