This would be useful for men recently diagnosed, who might be wondering what happens next, or haven’t been informed about things that might happened in the bedroom.


 

Another great resource for all men out there.

SURVEY: Sexual Health Needs of Older Adults in Australia


To whom it may concern at your Prostate Cancer Support Group,  

I am a PhD student at the University of Melbourne researching the sexual health needs of older adults in Australia. I am seeking participants aged 60 and over to complete an anonymous online survey. All responses will remain completely confidential, and participants will not be able to be identified in any way.

Older adults have different sexual health needs from younger people and there are very few information sources tailored to older demographics. This research investigates how we can better meet the sexual health information needs of older adults. 

Your help with this project would be much appreciated. Please share the link below with your members and others who may be interested. 

To access the survey, click here:

Please contact louise.bourchier@unimelb.edu.au for further information. The survey closes on the 31st of May 2021.

Thank you very much for considering my request.

Kind regards, 

Louise Bourchier
