New Survey on the use of darolutamide in the treatment of metastatic castration-sensitive prostate cancer

The Canadian Cancer Society is conducting a survey on the advantages and disadvantages of the drug darolutamide for treating metastatic castration-sensitive prostate cancer.  Patients and caregivers do not have to have experience with the drug to complete the survey, as information on their satisfaction with current treatments is valuable on its own.  Survey participants also may have an opportunity to give testimonials or be interviewed about their experience with darolutamide or their current treatments.  Results of the survey could lead to recommendations for darolutamide to be covered in Canada on public drug plans for people with this subset of prostate cancer. For information on participating in this survey, continue below.
