For patients who have completed PC-PEP program or are not currently enrolled in PC-PEP, we hope you consider taking our ongoing Prostate Cancer Quality of Life survey accessible through the link below (on the right) or by going to nscancer.ca.

This study aims at assessing the quality of life of prostate cancer patients and survivors at any point during the survivorship journey after diagnosis. The study consists in an online survey that is administered every 6 months for the first two years and then once a year afterwards. Eligibility criteria includes: having had a history of prostate cancer diagnosis, can read and understands English,  reside in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick or PEI, Canada. This study also includes a survey that is available also for the partners of those with a history of prostate cancer diagnosis. The survey is accessible at the same link provided above. Eligibility for partners includes having a partner who has a history of prostate cancer diagnosis, can read and understands English,  and reside in either Nova Scotia, New Brunswick or PEI, Canada.
