Do you have ADVANCED prostate cancer?


A researcher at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) College of Nursing is conducting a study to better understand supportive care needs and quality of life among individuals with ADVANCED forms of prostate cancer. If you live in the USA or its territories and are a patient with ADVANCED (i.e., recurrent, non-localized, or metastatic) prostate cancer, you are potentially eligible to participate.

Please note that this information was originally posted to this site on Friday, July 10, 2020, but the actual survey was subject to a “bot” attack and had to be taken down and reposted. If you had completed this survey prior to the early evening of July 10, Eastern time, then you do NOT need to re-complete the survey.

Individuals with advanced prostate cancer who live in the USA are initially invited to participate in this online survey and you may also volunteer for a follow-up interview once you have completed the survey. In return for your time and effort, some compensation may be available.

It will take you about 15 to 20 minutes to complete the survey, maybe less. The study poses no physical, social, or legal risks. The researchers will take every possible measure to maintain the confidentiality of your information in accordance with all national and local regulations.

You don’t have to respond to any question that you don´t want to answer and you may stop and exit the survey at any time and for any reason (boredom, fatigue, etc.).

This study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board of MUSC. If you feel you need any additional information, please e-mail Alejandra Schimmel at MUSC College of Nursing.
