Study – Follow-up Care after Treatment for Prostate Cancer in Nova Scotia



Open to Patient partners from Nova Scotia


A research team from Dalhousie University and Nova Scotia Health Authority is studying the follow-up care provided to men in Nova Scotia who have been diagnosed with and treated for prostate cancer. As part of this study, the research team is conducting telephone interviews with Nova Scotia men who are aged 18 and older, and who have been diagnosed with and completed treatment for prostate cancer.

These individuals will be asked about the care they have received since completing treatment for prostate cancer, what their experiences have been like, and whether the care they have received has met their post-treatment needs. The information gained from this study will help identify aspects of prostate cancer follow-up care that may be improved to better meet the needs of those who have been diagnosed with and treated for prostate cancer.

If you choose to participate you will receive a $25.00 honorarium in appreciation of your time.

It has been so rewarding to go from an idea to working with such a great group of dedicated people from so many different organizations towards a very fun and rewarding project. Several extremely engaged PVN members expressed interest in being part of piloting a patient virtual care peer support system. I am confident that this is the beginning of many more exciting collaborations!
