  • Abstract

    This research aims to help us understand men's experience with prostate cancer. Participants were invited to complete a battery of web-based questionnaires via online prostate cancer forums (Cancer Support Network, The New Prostate Cancer InfoLink). Clinical Gatekeepers were sent a brief description of the study and then disseminated the survey link to forum users. Prospective participants read a Participant Information sheet and provided written informed consent. The enrolment period was January 2018 to September 2018. The sample consisted of men who had been diagnosed with prostate cancer in the last 5 years. The study protocol was approved by the Research Ethics Committee of the National University of Ireland, Galway and was conducted in accordance with the principles of the Declaration of Helsinki.
