Prostate cancer (CaP) is a formidable public health problem in the US and in industrialized countries worldwide. Methods for primary prevention of CaP are unknown. As a result, early detection has become a mainstay of cancer control efforts. However, there is considerable controversy regarding the efficacy of screening in reducing disease-specific mortality. In light of this uncertainty, major medical organizations, including the National Cancer Institute, currently recommend that men discuss the pros and cons of CaP screening and make individualized screening decisions with their health care providers. However, because of constraints on time during medical encounters, it is not always feasible for providers to engage in in-depth discussions regarding the complexities of this issue. Therefore, interventions to promote informed decision-making (IDM) outside of clinical settings are needed.
In this study, we propose to: (1) develop an interactive computer-based decision aid (DA) to promote IDM for CaP screening; and (2) conduct a randomized controlled worksite trial to evaluate the impact the DA intervention on employed men’s ability to make informed decisions regarding CaP. This work is designed to be responsive to recent calls for IDM interventions in community settings among diverse populations. If successful, our findings could validate the effectiveness of DAs to promote IDM for CaP and serve as a model for widespread dissemination, thus improving quality of care.
