eHealth and information use by Australian men with prostate cancer.
Purpose of the Study
Prostate cancer is the most diagnosed cancer in Australia, with an estimated 18,110 new cases diagnosed in 2021. One in 6 Australian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer by the age of 85. While most Australians use the internet in their day to day lives, little is known about information and technology use by men with prostate cancer.
The PrE-Health study aims to understand the the impact of information resources and technology use on Australian men with prostate cancer. The study will assess how information resources and technology influence prostate cancer clinical and survivorship outcomes such as: disease progression rates, quality of life, psychology, and decision making.

2. Biopsy confirmed diagnosis of prostate cancer.
3. Has completed or is undergoing treatment for prostate cancer
