The Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society at La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia is conducting an international survey of men’s experiences of sexual activity following treatment for prostate cancer.
The aims of this survey include the following:
To learn more about how men adapt their sexual activities to prostate cancer treatments
To apply these findings to develop ways to help men overcome the side effects of prostate cancer therapy
To develop programs to help prostate cancer patients remain sexually active after prostate cancer treatment
The survey comprises questions related to background, sexual identity, relationship status, prostate cancer treatment, and sexual practices before and after treatment. This project has received ethics approval from the La Trobe University Human Ethics Committee.
