Abstract:

Treatment Decisions in Localized Prostate Cancer Patient, Partner and Physician, is a project that aims to develop and refine an innovative new model of prostate cancer decision making, that will form the foundation of a research and clinical program to understand, support and improve decision making in prostate cancer. This project is using a cross-sectional survey to explore the role of the patient, partner and physician in treatment decisions and to examine the effect of preferences, perceived preferences, and actual preferences on treatment decisions, decision satisfaction and decision process. Many valuable steps have been taken in the first year of this grant, including the development of a pilot questionnaire, administration of the pilot questionnaire, development of the protocol for the study and development of patient, spouse and physician questionnaires. Enrollment for the study began in November, 2000.
