Prostate cancer presentation, treatment selection, and outcomes among men with HIV/AIDS: A clinical stage, race, and age-matched contemporary analysis.

CONCLUSIONS: While most HIV+ patients had a history of acquired immune deficiency syndrome; HIV was well controlled in the majority of patients at the time of CaP diagnosis. While oncologic outcomes were similar between HIV+ and HIV- men, significant differences in treatment selection were observed. Further research is necessary to understand differences in treatment election by HIV status and to define optimal CaP treatment selection in men with HIV.

CONCLUSION: There are multiple overlapping psychosocial and healthcare system barriers to sexual recovery after prostate, bladder, and colorectal cancer treatment. Oncological providers must be cognizant of these complex barriers so they can facilitate patients' access to resources needed for successful sexual recovery after genitourinary cancer treatment. Evidence based interventions, such as couple psychosexual counseling and peer support should be implemented via multidisciplinary care. PMID: 32868190 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractPurpose of reviewMedical decisions concerning active surveillance are complex, especially when evidence on superiority of one of the treatments is lacking. Decision aids have been developed to facilitate shared decision-making on whether to pursue an active surveillance strategy. However, it is unclear how these decision aids are designed and which outcomes are considered relevant. The purpose of this study is to systematically review all decision aids in the field of oncological active surveillance strategies and outcomes used by authors to assess their efficacy.Recent findingsA search was performed in Embase, Med...

ConclusionsFindings suggest the one-factor, 11-itemInformed Prostate Cancer Screening Decision Self-Efficacy Scale has excellent psychometric properties and utility in reliably measuring health-related decision self-efficacy in African-American men. Future research is needed to confirm this factor structure among socio-demographically diverse African Americans.

Conclusions There was variable uptake of the PtDAs between the cases. Men who received the PtDA had positive outcomes. Several strategies were identified to increase or sustain PtDA use. Implications for Practice Nurses have a key role in supporting men making decisions about prostate cancer treatment by providing PtDAs, answering questions, and advocating for men's preferences.
