Let us introduce Lee Anne Walmsley. She is a Registered Nurse working on her PhD dissertation at the University of Kentucky. Her work is dedicated toward improving the psychological well-being of men with prostate cancer. As she says, we know very little about the psychological well-being of men as they deal with the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. Her study is designed to provide new insight into what factors affect a patient’s well-being. We urge you to join in her research by helping provide information about yourselves.
You can participate in the study if you 1) have been diagnosed with prostate cancer before, 2) are 18 years or older, 3) are married or have a partner, 4) are able to read and write in English, and 4) have not been diagnosed with any other type of cancer. The research study consists of a brief survey that is completed online. Please consider taking the survey and sharing the link with your friends!By participating in the research study, you will help us get a better understanding of how we can intervene to help men with prostate cancer improve their psychological well-being. https://redcap.uky.edu/redcap/surveys/?s=rRwr6bEDgv
