Survey: Unmet needs of those affected by prostate cancer

Prostate Cancer UK

Prostate Cancer UK is seeking to better understand the information and support needs of people who are, or have been, closely affected by prostate cancer across the UK.  Justice Studio has been commissioned by Prostate Cancer UK to undertake research into these unmet needs.

They are interested in hearing from both people who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer  and their supporters, such as a partner, family member or carer.

The aim of this research is to understand more about unmet needs in relation to a prostate cancer diagnosis. Unmet needs are defined as those needs in relation to a prostate cancer diagnosis that are not being met by the NHS, including a GP or other healthcare provider. The research consists of a survey, as well as face-to-face and telephone interviews with diagnosed people and the people who support them.

Prostate Cancer UK  are particularly interested in hearing from Black African/Caribbean men, gay and bisexual men and their supporters.

If you fit any of the above criteria and would like to take part you can complete the survey here. The survey should take 10 to 30 minutes. Responses are completely anonymous and will directly inform the charity about what support services they can offer in the future and where they focus their campaigning work.
