Seeking male volunteers for short video on prostate cancer

  9 April 2018  Victorian Primary Health Network Alliance   |   Third party content – view disclaimer

The Victorian Primary Health Network Alliance is seeking the help of three men, aged 60, 65, and 70 years (or thereabouts), who are interested in taking part in a video that aims to model good conversations between doctors and patients about the pros and cons of PSA testing for prostate cancer.

What’s involved?

The men will participate in a Q&A style interview with a GP in a consulting room with lights and cameras present.  The conversation will focus on PSA testing and prostate cancer only, there will not be any need for any physical examination, nor will it focus on treatment.  The men will need to be comfortable being filmed, have a good sense of humour (given the subject matter can be personal) and understand that they would be working from a script rather than their own experience.  Volunteers will be provided with a gift voucher in appreciation of their time.


Filming will take place at the Prostate Cancer Research Centre in North Melbourne on Thursday 3 May 2018 from 8am to approximately 1pm.

If you are interested, or know someone who may be, please contact Sue Merritt Project Manager, Statewide Optimal Care Pathways on (03) 8578 0579 or at
