The Treatment Decision-making Preferences of Patients with Prostate Cancer Should Be Recorded in Research and Clinical Routine: a Pooled Analysis of Four Survey Studies with 7169 Patients

AbstractDifferent patients want to take different roles in the treatment decision-making process; these roles can be classified as passive, collaborative, and active. The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between decision-making preferences among patients with prostate cancer and personal, disease-related, and structural factors. In four survey studies, we asked 7169 prostate cancer patients about their decision-making preferences using the Control Preferences Scale (CPS) and collected clinical, psychological, and quality-of-life measures. Most patients (62.2%) preferred collaborative decision-making, while 2322 (32.4%) preferred an active role, and only 391 (5.5%) preferred a passive role. Age (p

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]

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To assess the feasibility of enrollment and collecting patient-reported outcome (PRO) data as part of routine clinical urologic care for bladder and prostate cancer patients and examine overall patterns and racial variations in PRO use and symptom reports over time. SUBJECTS/PATIENTS AND METHODS: We recruited 76 patients (n = 29 Black and n = 47 White) with prostate or bladder cancer at a single, comprehensive cancer center. The majority of prostate cancer patients had intermediate risk (57%) disease and underwent either radiation or prostatectomy. Over half (58%) of bladder cancer...

Patients with clinically significant prostate cancer ‐related anxiety should be assessed for major depression (and vice versa), as well as productivity loss. AbstractBackgroundThere are uncertainties about prostate cancer ‐related anxiety's (PCRA) associations with health‐related quality of life (HRQOL) and major depression, and these could affect the quality of mental healthcare provided to prostate cancer patients. Addressing these uncertainties will provide more insight into PCRA and inform further research on the value of PCRA prevention. The goals of this study were to measure associations between PCRA and HRQOL...

Conclusions Negative or non-beneficial RTW expectations, which are related to self-perception and behavioral intention, seem to be key factors for expecting delayed RTW. Interventions to early identify and adjust such expectations might empower cancer rehabilitation participants to develop appropriate expectations for work recovery.

This study aimed to assess whether prostate cancer survivors who received a behavioral intervention to urinary incontinence had experienced a significant mood improvement.MethodsOne hundred fifty-three prostate cancer survivors with persistent incontinence were included in this secondary data analysis. They were randomly assigned to usual care or interventions that provided pelvic floor muscle exercises and self-management skills. All subjects had measures of anxiety, depression, and anger at baseline, 3  months (post-intervention), and 6 months (follow-up). Negative binomial regression analysis was performed to ...
