Making the Choice - Audio and Internet

About

This project is an adaptation of Making the Choice. We revise the paper-based decision aid and develop alternative media formats (audiotape- and Internet-based versions) of the paper based decision aid to increase distribution and utilization.

We also test the paper, audiotape, and Internet-based decision aids in an appropriate population of patients to provide pilot data on the tools' efficacy for improving patient knowledge.

Aims

Aim 1. Create a complementary audiotape-based version of the Phase II, paper-based decision aid covering the same content materials.

Aim 2. Create a complementary Internet-based version of the Phase II decision aid covering the same content materials.

Aim 3. Test the paper, audiotape, and Internet-based decision aids in an appropriate population of patients to provide pilot data on the tools' efficacy for improving patient knowledge, decisional conflict, and satisfaction with the new materials.

Participants

60 men, newly diagnosed with prostate cancer, located in Michigan.
