BME Cancer Communities (BMECC) are pleased to be a partner in the development of this new interactive tool developed by Nottingham Trent University. It was a collaboration between the Department of Psychology (School of Social Sciences) and the Interactive Systems Research Group (School of Science and Technology) at NTU.

Other partners include:

The tool helps users assess individual prostate cancer risk, so to encourage men to seek medical advice, and provides information about how clinical diagnosis is made. It is set around a conversation about prostate cancer symptoms, risk factors, and diagnostic procedures taking place in a fictional barber’s shop. The narrative is available in patois with English subtitles.

This tool is also available as an Android app. Get it on Google Play
