This is Amy from the Health Information team at Prostate Cancer UK. I’m working on a new project to understand how we can best support men with advanced prostate cancer who are approaching the end of their lives, as well as their friends and family.
At the moment, Prostate Cancer UK doesn’t have very much specific support for people approaching the end of their life. We’re now developing information resources to help people understand what they can expect during this difficult time. We want to hear from people who have been there to make sure that we are able to answer all the most important questions people have.
I would really appreciate input from some of you here. We’re looking for people to take a short survey to tell us about their thoughts and experiences about end of life care and support. We would like to hear from men with advanced prostate cancer and their family and friends. We’d also like to hear from family and friends of men who have sadly died from prostate cancer.
You can take the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/prostate_cancer_end_of_life
It should take about 10 minutes. Your answers will be anonymous. We will use your responses to help develop resources to better support people as they come to the end of their life, and their family and friends.
If you are part of any other forums or community groups and you think they might be interested in taking part, please share the survey with them.
If you have any questions or comments, post them up here or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your help,
