The Work We Fund
To support transformational prostate cancer research that will accelerate progress towards the reduction of death and suffering due to recurrent or advanced prostate cancer.
To improve the physical and mental well-being of men living with prostate cancer, together with their partners, caregivers and families.
This project will use whole genome sequencing to develop markers that predict outcomes following radical prostatectomy or radiotherapy in men with prostate cancer.
The NewAccess program seeks to demonstrate a new service model to improve the psychological wellbeing of Australian adults with mild to moderate depression and anxiety through provision of assisted and/or self-guided Low Intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
To improve the engagement of fathers in treatment for childhood conduct problems by providing training for clinicians, tailoring interventions to address fathers’ needs, and improving access to evidence-based interventions.
To raise awareness about male mental health, and the way this is shaped by expectations associated with masculinity. Through developing and evaluating a documentary and associated social media campaign on male mental health.
New tests that better predict aggressive prostate cancer from low risk disease so that patient treatment decisions can be optimized at the time of diagnosis.
To improve the physical and mental well being of men living with prostate cancer, together with their partners, caregivers and families.
By using advanced genetic technologies including Next Generation Sequencing, we aim to discover and better understand genetic factors which are linked to the development of testicular cancer.
To support the implementation of outside the box proof of concept ideas that disrupt long held assumptions/myths about men and their health which will encourage doing things differently and ultimately lead to improved health outcomes.
To establish Centres of Excellence where scientists and clinicians with different areas of expertise can collaborate to address the big questions in prostate cancer research. Long term and large scale support will ensure that these centres are well placed to deliver breakthrough discoveries and to provide a world-class training ground for the scientists of the future.
To improve the physical and mental well being of men living with prostate cancer, together with their partners, carers and families.
To improve the physical and mental wellbeing of men in the UK living with prostate cancer, together with their partners, carers and families, through testing of new models of care in practice and improved collaboration between experts across the field of prostate cancer care.
To prevent, detect early and treat mood disorders, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress, among men living with heart disease.
To trial a national program of Prostate Cancer Specialist Nurses working within the hospital system to provide supportive care for men affected by prostate cancer.
