Breaking Down Barriers
Breaking Down Barriers are looking for men 60 and over, living in the community, to take part in an anonymous survey to help them uncover if certain beliefs and other factors influence help-seeking decision making. They want to hear from all perspectives, including those feeling emotionally well not requiring mental health support. This will help them understand what needs to change so those that require help can get it.
Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS): Examining the role of psychosocial and socioeconomic factors
Prostatitis is the third most common urological disease in males and is defined as inflammation, infection or swelling in the prostate gland, leading to pelvic pain. In all prostatitis cases, a majority of men experience pain and/or other symptoms for months/years even with no infection detected This study aims to understand the experience of men with chronic pelvic pain or prostatitis.
Cognitive Adaptations Related to the Experience of Maternity and Paternity
Parenthood changes a person’s life - physically, mentally, emotionally, and environmentally. Despite this, there is very little known about the effect of parenthood on human cognition. Therefore, in this project, we are seeking to understand the effects of parenthood on human cognition across the first two years of a child’s life. To do this, Monash University is recruiting parents with at least one child who is aged between 0 and 24 months, and individuals who do not have children.
D4Ds - Diet for Dads Sperm Study
It is known that various lifestyle factors such as diet and physical activity, among others, can impact the health and function of sperm, thus a man’s fertility. You are being invited to take part in a study that is assessing the effects of a nutrient-dense diet without weight loss on sperm quality in men who are obese.
DadBooster — An online depression treatment for dad
Becoming a dad doesn’t happen overnight and doesn’t happen without a fair amount of upheaval and challenges — and 10% of men may experience symptoms of depression when expecting a new baby. New fathers who are struggling are often overlooked and their difficulties are not acknowledged by a system that has focused mainly on mother and baby health and wellbeing. DadBooster is designed for men (fathers or non-birthing partners) who are helping to care for a baby who are feeling overwhelmed and may be experiencing some of the signs of anxiety and depression.
PCEssentials Hormone Therapy Study
If you have prostate cancer and your doctor has recommended androgen deprivation therapy or hormone therapy, the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia would like to invite you to take part in a research study.
Twins Research Australia – Diet and reproductive health
There has been a shift in dietary patterns with increased consumption of processed, easily accessible foods. Minimal attention has been placed on what changes occur to sperm as a result of differences in diet, and whether this can impact the health of future offspring. Because of this, there is a lack of fertility healthcare and dietary guidelines available to men.
This study will help understand the impact of diet on fertility, and the potential impact on child health. It is hoped this could also help the development of dietary guidelines for fathers-to-be.
Working Out Dads
The Murdoch Children’s Research Institute and Tweddle Child & Family Health Service are looking for dads of young children (aged 0-4 years) to get involved in a project about how to boost the health and wellbeing of dads during early parenthood.
