Cancer Council SA is seeking participants for a new research project investigating South Australians preference for receiving a Healthy Lifestyle After Cancer Program.
The project, led by Flinders University Psychology Honours Student Morgan Leske, is aiming to determine the best way to provide a healthy lifestyle program (phone versus online) to people following their cancer treatment.
For Morgan, the project is a personal one, having seen many close family and friends go through cancer.
“Like many others I have been touched by cancer, including some of my family members and many close friends and in 2014, I was a Youth Ambassador for Cancer Council SA.”
“People touched by cancer often struggle to get back to the same healthy routine they had before their diagnosis.”
“We know that programs are most effective if they suit individual preferences, so my aim through this project is to understand these preferences and develop a program that will help to meet them,” she said.
Participation in the research project involves taking part in a 20 – 30 minute survey, either online or hardcopy.
Participation is open to individuals who are 18 years or older, have been diagnosed with cancer and live in Australia.
If you are interested in taking part, you can complete the survey online here: https://bit.ly/31iLCqB.
Alternatively, participants may complete a hardcopy version which will be posted to them with a reply-paid envelope.
NOTE: This project has been approved by Cancer Council Victoria’s Institutional Research Review Committee (#IER 1904). If you have any complaints or concerns about the way in which this program is being conducted or evaluated, please contact RGU@cancervic.org.au
