The Prostate Cancer Survivorship and E-Health/Tele-Health PhD Scholarship

The Prostate Cancer Survivorship and E-Health/Tele-Health PhD Scholarship will be aligned with the broader research program “Surviving Prostate Cancer in Regional Australia” located within the Institute for Resilient Regions (IRR) at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ).

The project will aim to use technology as a means for improving survivorship of men with prostate cancer in regional Australia. The project will develop and trial technology-based interventions (e.g. Tele-Health, E-Health) that can be delivered remotely to enhance care and support for, or improve the quality of life of, men living with prostate cancer in regional Australia (specific project details and scope to be determined).

The Prostate Cancer Survivorship and E-Health/Tele-Health PhD Scholarship will provide a stipend (living allowance) valued at AUD$30 000 per annum.
