e-TC Express: Getting back on track after testicular cancer
About one in five men feel stressed or down after finishing treatment for testicular cancer, but few seek help for this. That's why a team of cancer survivors, researchers and clinicians developed the e-TC website, which provides evidence-based information and psychological strategies for coping with the challenges associated with testicular cancer.
This study aims to evaluate the use and satisfaction with the e-TC website in men who have finished treatment for testicular cancer and are feeling stressed, down or worried about their cancer coming back. Men will be recruited through clinicians at participating centres and online via search engine and social media advertising.
Men who fulfil the study eligibility criteria will be given access to the e-TC website and will complete brief questionnaires asking about how they are feeling and their satisfaction with the website as they work through it. In addition, participants' psychological distress, quality of life and supportive care needs will also be assessed prior to accessing the e-TC website and again after 12 and 24 weeks of access.
This study has now reached its recruitment target.
