This Cancer Stories Project aimed to identify the factors that have helped people cope with cancer. It used participatory research, a collaborative approach involving ten cancer survivors and family members of cancer survivors as active co-researchers. The full project team also included a kaumātua/kuia group and two academic/ clinical advisors.

True NTH New Zealand

We are establishing True NTH New Zealand (True NTH) as a collaborative network that will develop and implement an agreed set of interventions that together will have a strong likelihood of improving the lives of men diagnosed and living with prostate cancer in New Zealand.

The focus of True NTH for the first three years will be interventons that can be implemented widely across New Zealand where possible utilising technology and telehealth. True NTH will have an agreed leadership and management structure and commit to knowledge sharing across the sector. Interventions that cover the life journey of a man, his partner, family and caregivers from a diagnosis of prostate cancer through to end of life are within scope for True NTH.

 We are calling for expressions of interest. The closing date is 10 December. 

Movember - changing the face of men's health

Men in New Zealand benefit each year through funds raised in the Movember campaign. It’s very much an on-line fundraising event in which participants are urged to register or support a moustache growing friend, partner or colleague at Movember has grown from being the idea of an enthusiastic group of 30 Australians in 2003 to now encompassing 21 countries and raising a staggering NZ151 million dollars, in 2013.

The Cancer Society of New Zealand receives 50 per cent of the net funds generated here and this assists us in providing a range of benefits to men, particularly in the area of prostate and testicular cancers. The other beneficiary is the Mental Health Foundation.
