Low-Risk Prostate Cancer Decision Dashboard

Multiple treatment options are available for men newly diagnosed with low risk prostate cancer. Deciding which is best for you can be a difficult and trying experience for affected patients and their loved ones.

We are testing a new tool called a decision dashboard that is designed to help patients understand the pros and cons of the different treatment options available.

You can participate in this study if you have been newly diagnosed with low risk prostate cancer and have not yet decided on a treatment plan. Participation in the study involves reviewing the decision tool you receive, answering a series of questions about how your decision is made and how helpful you found the decision tool.

You will also be asked to complete additional surveys about 3 and 9 months later that will inquire about how you are doing and to how you feel about your choice of treatment.

Everyone who participates will be entered into a lottery; winners will receive a $50 Amazon gift certificate.
