Decision Aids in Improving Knowledge in Patients With Newly Diagnosed Prostate Cancer


Brief description of study

This randomized phase III trial studies how well decision aids work in improving knowledge in patients with newly diagnosed prostate cancer. Decision aids may improve patients' knowledge of their condition and options for treatment, and may also help when talking with their doctor.

Detailed Study Description

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To test the comparative effectiveness of decision aids (DA's) on patient knowledge.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To test the impact of in-visit DA's alone compared to usual care on quality of life outcomes and treatment utilization.

II. To test the impact of out-of-visit DA's alone compared to usual care on quality of life outcomes and treatment utilization.

III. To test the impact of combined in-visit and out-of-visit DA's compared to both usual care and individual DAs on quality of life outcomes and treatment utilization.

IV. To test the comparative effectiveness of DA's on minority men's knowledge. V. To compare clinic time required to administer the DA's across arms.

OUTLINE: Patients are randomized into 1 of 4 arms.

ARM A: Patients receive decision aids "Knowing your Options" before and "Prostate Choice" during their consultation visit.

ARM B: Patients receive "Knowing your Options" decision aid before their consultation visit.

ARM C: Patients receive "Prostate Choice" decision aid during their consultation visit.
