Abstract:

Our study team has made considerable progress during the second year of the award. During the past 12 months, we held a focus group with prostate cancer patients to test the usability of the program, and minor revisions were made to the application based on the participants feedback. Multiple research team meetings were held to discuss recruitment procedures and study protocol and we have added two additional physicians to the study to aid our recruitment efforts. We have successfully enrolled n10 eligible patients and are continuing to actively enroll participants into the study. During the extension period, we plan to complete recruitment and all expected follow-up assessments. We will also begin analyzing data and writing up the results for publication and presentation at national meetings.
