Monday, February 4, 2019 - 6:30pm
Your announcement.: 

PI: Erik Wibowo, PhD (University of Otago)

Collaborator: Charlene Rapsey, PhD, PGDipCIPs (University of Otago)

Background: Sexual dysfunction is common among men after receiving prostate cancer treatment. Many couples stop sexual activity when the patients have sexual dysfunction, but some remain sexually active.

Aim: Our team plans to assess what strategies prostate cancer patients use to maintain sexual activity.

Eligibility: The study is open to all prostate cancer patients following treatment. 

Procedure: The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete and only needs to be completed once. At the end of the survey, participants can enter a raffle for a chance to win a $100 NZD gift card.

Potential Outcomes: Data from this study can potentially be used by health care providers to advice prostate cancer patients on how to remain sexually active.
