Abstract:

This study examined a method of patient education for men who were seeking treatment for management of localized prostate cancer. The primary goal was to evaluate a recently developed computer-based educational tool CD-ROM that was designed to provide treatment-related information and to assist men in making an informed treatment decision. Men were accrued post-biopsy for a baseline interview, and were randomized to receive a CD-ROM with a decision aid, or a CD-ROM with information only. We have completed accrual, randomization, baseline, one-month, and final telephone interviews. The study participation rate was 81.6 133163. We have conducted preliminary analyses of the baseline and one-month follow-up data, and will conduct further analyses now that the final telephone interviews have been completed.
