Help with research from your own home: Any man with prostate cancer

Recommended Posts

Jim Marshall (not a doctor) said ...

Many members are keen to help with research into the condition that affects us all.

The last opportunity we offered you (Phase II of an Exercise with mets study) was limited greatly by having to reach certain places in certain capital cities.


The trial below, however, is available to any man with the disease.

Results of the trial should make it easier to reach more men and those who care for them, to offer them information and support.


It involves an online survey, or you can be sent a paper copy if that is more convenient.

The study has Ethics Committee approval, and is registered on the Pathfinder system.

A random prize draw is offered to participants.

You can volunteer by emailing Denise on Denise.Pyle@usq.edu.au or phoning her on 0433 069 922.
