Researcher looking for input

Posted 28 Feb 2017 at 14:02
Hi - we've been contacted by a research nurse involved in some work that is being supported by the True Nth programme, and who is looking to recruit around 12 participants in the next 2 or 3 weeks to comment on a website that is being developed. See below for details and if you are interested in participating or want to know more please contact Margaret direct, her details are at the bottom of this post.

Ann Innes, Support Group Development Manager

Please note- as participants will be required to attend a meeting in London it is probably more applicable to men within reasonable travelling distance of London.

Is this you?
If you have had prostate cancer treatment you may know that incontinence (bladder or bowel leakage) is common. In interviews, men have told us they have had very little information to help them look after their catheter after surgery and to manage their incontinence.

Would you like to help improve the information available to men?
If so, we are seeking men to assist with the evaluation of a new website. This has been developed specifically for men having prostate cancer treatment. Information is provided about catheter care and incontinence products as well as other resources e.g. men talking about their experiences. This work has been funded by Prostate Cancer UK (Movember).

What would you need to do?
If you are a man (18 years +) who has experience of incontinence after treatment for prostate cancer, you may be suitable for this project. You will be asked to complete two short questionnaires and tell us your views about the new website before it is launched! We would very much appreciate your help.

If you would like to have an informal chat to find out more about this project please contact Margaret Macaulay, Research Nurse.

Spoke to Margaret this morning. It would be most convenient if participants were in the London area or within reasonable travelling distance because face to face contact in the office in Euston would be best. If you are in that area, please send an email to Margaret (email address above).

TURP then LRP in 2009/2010. Lots of leakage but PSA < 0.1 AMS-800 Artificial Sphincter activated 2015.
