Condition prostate cancer
Treatment preference based decision aid
Sponsor University of Pennsylvania
Collaborator Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute
Start date June 2013
End date December 2016
Trial size 800 participants
Trial identifier NCT02032550, PCC201


The purpose of this study is to develop a preference based decision aid to assess the treatment preferences of prostate cancer patients, and to analyze the interaction of treatment preferences, type of treatment received and their relationship with health related quality of life, satisfaction with care, decision regret, and psychological health of men with localized prostate cancer.

Study Design

Allocation randomized
Intervention model parallel assignment
Masking single blind (investigator)
Primary purpose treatment
The experimental arm of preference based decision aid intervention will complete a web-based conjoint analysis instrument for preference assessment.
preference based decision aid
The objective of the preference based decision aid is to assess the treatment preferences of prostate cancer patients. The investigators will analyze the association between preferences, treatment choice and objective and subjective outcomes. The preference based decision aid will lead to a values-based patient centered treatment decision making. This will ultimately improve clinical decision making, clinical policy process, enhance patient centered care and improve prostate cancer outcomes.
(No Intervention)
Participants randomized into this group will have usual care from their doctors without any intervention

Additional Information

Official title Treatment Preference and Patient Centered Prostate Cancer Care
Principal investigator Ravishankar Jayadevappa, PhD
Description The objective is to test the comparative effectiveness of a conjoint analysis decision aid intervention compared to usual care. The investigators will identify preferred attributes of prostate cancer treatments that will help in designing a conjoint analysis decision aid to help patients weigh treatment attributes. The investigators will employ values markers to represent clusters of values for particular aspects of treatments that are valued most by individual patients. The investigators will test if the concordance between values markers and treatment received is predictive of objective outcomes and subjective outcomes. The study hypothesis is that conjoint task may help in treatment choice and prostate cancer patients whose treatment is more concordant with their values markers will have improved outcomes.
