Study Summary

This trial will test whether a new cancer patient navigation program, which pairs patients with trained peer navigators, can improve quality of life, social support and health care service use for men with prostate cancer.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for Canadian men who've recently finished prostate cancer treatment within the last 3 months, can read and speak English, and have an email or are willing to create one. It's not for those with advanced metastatic disease, receiving palliative care, or unwilling to be randomly assigned.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests a web-based peer navigation program where men with prostate cancer receive guidance from trained peers online. The goal is to see if this support improves their quality of life and health management compared to usual care plus website information access.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since this trial involves a support program rather than medication, traditional side effects like you'd expect from drugs aren't applicable. However, participants may experience emotional impacts from discussing sensitive health issues.
