About

THE SURVEY

The Strength Through Insight app allows patients and their caregivers to build a partnership for communication throughout their cancer treatment. The survey uses standard questions which can be answered digitally via an app at a set schedule. The survey allows easier and immediate sharing of a patient's perspective on their life, treatment, and illness to enable shared decision making. The Strength Through Insight study aims to assess the feasibility of collecting survey data from patients using digital technologies and hand held devices.

The digital survey mirrors the paper version however, leverages a smart phone for survey delivery and response collection. This allows the survey to be taken in the comfort of your own home, and at your leisure. Removing logistical barriers of traditional survey methods and response collection, Strength Through Insight may enable better compliance and more accurate reporting.

Patient

VOICE

At Jefferson we always try to understand our patients concerns and learn from their insight. To assess quality of life in patients with prostate cancer, patients are surveyed using standardized questions. The goal of the survey is to listen to the patient's voice and perspective to optimize their care.

By participating in this study and sharing your feedback with Jefferson, our researchers and physicians will continue to create new treatment plans and optimize current treatments for those with prostate cancer.
