This research project will be looking at how an online, personalised, lifestyle intervention program may help protect memory and thinking abilities from declining over a 24-month period.
The maintenance of 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.
Self-compassion, weight stigma, psychological well-being, and eating behaviours in Australian males
The aim of this project is to explore the relationships between self-compassion, weight stigma, psychological wellbeing, and eating behaviours in males. Participation would involve completing an online survey (approximately 30 minutes).
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.
Australian males' knowledge of male fertility
The aim of this project is to explore Australian males' knowledge of male infertility and the factors associated with higher levels of fertility knowledge. You are being invited to complete an online survey about your demographic (background)information, fertility characteristics, and experiences, and knowledge of male fertility.
Men's psychosocial needs when diagnosed with male infertility
This research project seeks to explore what information and support males diagnosed with infertility desire and receive at diagnosis, when making decisions about managing their infertility, and during assisted reproductive technology (ART) treatments.
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.
Out with Cancer
Previous research suggests LGBTQI+ communities experience a disproportionate cancer burden and face unique psychosocial challenges. The Out with Cancer study is investigating LGBTQI+ experiences of cancer and cancer care, and of medical interventions to reduce cancer risk. Information from this study will be used to develop better information for LGBTQI+ people with cancer and their carers.
Research shows that men with low-risk prostate cancer do not always fully understand their treatment options and the benefits and risks of each option. Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre are testing a website designed to help men understand their diagnosis and make informed decisions about their treatment options.
