Abstract:

The specific aims were to 1 develop and pilot test an intervention to facilitate informed decision-making about prostate cancer screening, 2 measure intervention impact on screening, and 3 evaluate impact on patient knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs. We hypothesized that exposure to decision counseling would affect prostate cancer screening and related perceptions.
