HRC Midlands prostate cancer study

The Midlands Prostate Cancer Study (MPCS) 2011-2014

The Health Research Council of New Zealand along with the Ministry of Health issued a request for proposals (RFP) during 2010 to increase the evidence-base about the current prostate cancer pathway from diagnosis to outcomes. The specific objectives of the RFP included:

  • The pathways of care following an abnormal PSA test
  • The costs of care to the individuals and the community
  • The spectrum of complications arising from diagnosis and treatment
  • The implications for equitable access for Maori men to care

The following website shares the University of Auckland response to this RFP and covers the full pathway of care for men diagnosed with localised prostate cancer.
