The 'Out with Cancer’ study, funded by an Australian Research Council linkage grant, is a three-year project focused on understanding lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex (LGBTQI+) experiences of cancer and cancer care.
The ‘Out with Cancer’ study wants to know about LGBTQI+ experiences of cancer and cancer care.
LGBTQI+ includes people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, born with a variation in sex characteristics (intersex variation), and those who identify with other descriptor terms used in our communities (+).
This study will ask about your experience of cancer or caregiving, wellbeing, social support and relationships, and experiences with the healthcare system. We will use this information to develop better information and support for LGBTQI+ people with cancer and their carers.
If you are an LGBTQI+ person who has had cancer, or medical intervention to reduce cancer risk, we are interested in your experiences.
If you are a carer or support person of an LGBTQI+ person with cancer, or are an LGBTQI+ person who is a cancer carer, we are interested in your experiences.
