Help with a research survey … and help PCRI too


A research team at the University of Texas School of Public Health and University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is seeking prostate cancer patients to participate in an anonymous, web-based survey related to the advantages and disadvantages of active surveillance as a possible option for men diagnosed with early-stage prostate cancer.

To participate in this project, you need to have been diagnosed with early stage, localized prostate cancer and have completed treatment between November 2007 and May 2012. The survey should take you about 30 minutes to complete. In return for your assistance, the research team will donate $25.00 to the Prostate Cancer Research Institute (PCRI).

The goal of the research team is to facilitate the design (and presumably the content) of better decision aids for men who are diagnosed with prostate cancer in the future, presumably to include accurate information about the risks and benefits of active surveillance as a management strategy. The researchers are  interested in hearing from prostate cancer survivors from all ethnicities, but especially those underrepresented in research participation, such as African-American, Asian, and Hispanic men.

If you want to participate in the survey, you just need to click here and to complete the survey by Friday, November 23.

If you have any questions about the survey, you can e-mail the survey administrators directly.
