- Public TitleEvaluation of information provision and treatment decision making for men with early-stage prostate cancer.
- Scientific TitleProstate Cancer Patient-centered Care (PCPCC): impact of a treatment decision aid in a pragmatic, cluster randomized controlled trial.
- hypothesisWe expect that the decision aid will support patients in deciding about prostate cancer treatment by decreasing decisional conflict and regret. We also expect and an improvement of treatment satisfaction and health-related quality of life.
- Healt Condition(s) or Problem(s) studiedProstatic neoplasms, Prostate cancer
- Inclusion criteria- Men that are newly diagnosed with early stage prostate cancer;

- InterventionsThe control group will receive usual care; information provision and provided decisional support will be given according to the hospital standards.
In addition to usual care, the intervention group will be granted access to an online decision aid, providing patients with structured information on the risks and benefits of the different treatment options and offer value-clarification tasks. A summary is obtained to discuss with their physician during the following consultation.
- Primary outcomeDecisional conflict (short term), decisional regret and treatment satisfaction (long term). All measured by questionnaires.
- Secondary outcomeDecision making role, knowledge about prostate cancer, statisfaction with information, preparation for decision making, health-related quality of life, and personality (anxiety, depression, optimism) and skills measures (self-efficacy, health literacy, numeracy). All measured by questionnaires.
- TimepointsT0: Registration; after diagnosis, but before a treatment decision is made (no questionnaire).
T1: After treatment decision making (approximately two weeks after registration)
T2: Follow-up after 6 months
T3: Follow-up after 12 months

- Brief summaryAt an early stage, prostate cancer patients are often eligible for more than one treatment option, including active surveillance. In terms of long-time survival no treatment option is superior. To choose the most suitable treatment, a patient has to weigh his personal preferences against the risk involved to the cancer and the occurrence of side-effects from treatment. To stimulate shared decision making between a patient and his physician, decision aids (DA's) have proven to be a valuable tool but routine use in clinical practice is lagging behind. For this study an existing prostate cancer treatment DA is adjusted to Dutch context for use at minimal effort and optimal support in clinical consultation. This has resulted in an innovative, web based DA. The aim of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of this tool as well as implementation in clinical practice.
