- Brief summaryTo address the limited use of decision support in oncology daily practice, the implementation of a decision aids (DA) is studied in patients with localized prostate cancer who had more than one treatment option (surgery, external radiotherapy, brachytherapy and/or active surveillance). This study focusses primarily on the barriers and facilitators for DA use.
Both care providers and patients fill out questionnaires on decision making and on the use of the DA. The implementation rate was calculated as the portion of eligible patients that received a DA, using national cancer registry data on the number of eligible patients per hospital.
In addition, the effect of the DA is studied by comparing the intervention group (receiving usual care plus DA) with a control group (receiving usual care without DA).
