Invitation to participate in research on reimbursement payments for external breast prostheses

If you:
  • have had a mastectomy as a result of breast cancer and
  • currently use an external breast prosthesis…
We would like to hear from you.

We are a social research consultancy called Urbis and are conducting an evaluation of the National External Breast Prostheses Reimbursement Program on behalf of the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing. We are seeking to learn about women's experiences of accessing this program.

Your feedback will be important in ensuring that the program benefits women who have had a mastectomy as a result of breast cancer and require external breast prostheses. All responses will be anonymous and confidential.
