HKCT has been asked to share the following invitation to older adults …

A PhD candidate from the Sydney School of Public Health at The University of Sydney is currently conducting a study on older adults’ medical decision-making.   More specifically, the study involves interviewing older people (70+ years) about their breast, cervical, prostate and bowel cancer screening decision-making (i.e., factors considered in decision-making, discussions with health professionals, information considered).  The aim is to develop an intervention to support older adults to make informed cancer screening decisions.  All research methods have been approved by the USYD Human Ethics Committee.

The study includes a short questionnaire (5 minutes), followed by a semi-structured interview of no longer than 60 minutes via phone to examine older adults’ cancer screening decision-making.

If you are aged 70 years or older and have ever been screened for breast, cervical, prostate or bowel cancer, please take part in this important research.

If you are interested in taking part, please click on the weblink below, which will redirect you to the online information sheet, consent form and pre-interview questionnaire.  Participation is voluntary.
