Testing A Multidisciplinary, Group Based Intervention To Meet The Needs Of Men With Prostate Cancer
Grant number: 509143 | Funding period: 2008 - 2011
This study will test an innovative approach to meeting the physical and psychosocial needs of men with early stage prostate cancer using a randomised controlled trial. This novel approach involves a combination of individual and group-based consultations which encourages peer-to-peer support, promotes self-care and enhances appropriate multidisciplinary referrals and communication. It provides a new model of care for patients with chronic diseases that can be translated into clinical practice.
