The anonymous online survey, is meant to gain information “from urologists about the current survivorship care that is provided for survivors of prostate cancer,” according to Stacy Loeb, MD, MSc.

A recently launched survey is looking to evaluate patterns of prostate cancer survivorship care among providers who manage patients with prostate cancer.

Discussing the impetus behind the survey, Stacy Loeb, MD, MSc, told Urology Times®, “There are more than 3 million prostate cancer survivors living in the United States. Prostate cancer has a significant impact on quality of life, including urinary health, sexual function, and overall well-being.”

The anonymous online survey, which Loeb said can be completed in approximately 5 minutes, is meant to gain information “from urologists about the current survivorship care that is provided for survivors of prostate cancer,” according to Loeb, professor of urology and population health at New York University Grossman School of Medicine, New York City.

Added Loeb, “Once the survey is completed, we will publish the results in a urology journal and disseminate them through social media. We will also use the information to identify gaps that we can address to improve future care for prostate cancer.”
