||Prostate Cancer-a Decision-Aid Video for Patients
DESCRIPTION: The goal of this Phase II proposal is to produce and test
a videotape about treatment options for prostate cancer that presents
medically rigorous information in nontechnical language using
documentaries of real patients. The videotape will be designed as a
decision-aid to promote informed decision-making about treatment as well
as to increase patient satisfaction with their decisions. During Phase
I, a script for one segment of the video and a very good seven-minute
video excerpt were developed based on feedback from men treated for
prostate cancer, their partners, urologists and nurses.
