Funder: Movember Foundation

Lead Researcher: Professor Claire Foster

Research Team: Ms Caroline Moore, Mr Tim Dudridge, Professor Alison Richardson, Dr Richard Wagland, Professor Dame Jessica Corner, Professor Mandy Fader, Dr Lucy Brindle, Dr Jane Frankland, Dr Carol Rivas, Professor Peter W Smith, Associate Professor Janis Baird, Dr Rebecca Foster, Dr Sophia Taylor, Mrs Christine May

Survival for prostate cancer patients has increased dramatically in the last 25 years. However, globally there is huge variation in the survival rates. This variation is partly due to differences in the quality and outcomes of medical care for men with prostate cancer. Care can be improved by identifying high-quality providers and understanding their methods.

The purpose of the study is to improve the physical and mental health of men treated for prostate cancer. The study aims to compare care provided for prostate cancer patients across the world in order to find new ways to improve the quality of care and survival rates of men with prostate cancer. The Macmillan Survivorship Research Group, at the University of Southampton, will act as the coordinating centre for the UK part of this global project.

Patients who have been recently diagnosed with localised prostate cancer will be approached to take part in the study, regardless of the type of cancer treatment they receive. The global study, will collect clinical data from medical records and patient completed questionnaires. Data from sites around the world will be analysed to understand the factors behind providing the best possible care for prostate cancer patients.
