Published online: 5 February 2007

To the Editor: We read with interest the article by Couper et al on the psychosocial impact of prostate cancer (PCA) on patients and their female partners.1 We agree that involvement of partners in the research pro-cess is pivotal to understanding the relational dimension of how PCA is both understood and approached by men and their partners.2
