ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer conducted the organization’s first patient education survey, with the goal of better understanding the experiences of those affected by prostate cancer and learning about their educational needs. More than 1,400 prostate cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers responded to the survey, providing ZERO with valuable insight into what men and families need throughout their prostate cancer journeys.
The survey was conducted from November 20, 2013 through January 21, 2014 and was open to the public. Respondents were recruited using personal outreach to ZERO’s constituents, our social media networks and partner organizations. The survey findings will be used to enhance ZERO’s educational materials and programs and to guide development of new materials.
