ZERO Education Survey Results

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.surveyresults

 


Emotional Impact Survey

A recent survey indicated that 64 percent of men with prostate cancer report that their prostate cancer diagnosis has a moderate to severe impact on their social and emotional wellbeing. While both patients and caregivers indicated that prostate cancer disrupts many aspects of their life, it appears that sex life, mood, and career are the most affected.

In partnership with ZERO, Ferring Pharmaceuticals conducted two parallel surveys of prostate cancer patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals to better understand the perceptions and experiences of prostate cancer. The results from the surveys gave us greater insight into the emotional impact of prostate cancer. Six hundred people responded to the surveys, including:

  • 100 men diagnosed with prostate cancer
  • 100 caregivers for men diagnosed with prostate cancer
  • 200 urologists
  • 200 allied health professionals

It is essential for men and their loved ones to become educated about prostate cancer once diagnosed so they may partner with their doctor to develop a holistic treatment plan that works with their lifestyle and addresses their concerns.
