Community Interventions in Non-medical Settings to Increase Informed Decision Making for Prostate Cancer Screening - Univ of Texas - SIP 21-04


This project is a community based participatory research collaboration among two
universities and two research networks that will enable increased Informed Decision Making
(IDM) for prostate cancer screening in Hispanic and African American men. Our collaborating
universities are the University of Texas Health Science center at Houston, Texas Prevention
Research Center (TPRC), Baylor College of Medicine (BCM), and the University of South
Carolina (USC). Our collaborating networks are the Latinos in a Network for Cancer Control
(LINCC), and the South Carolina Cancer Research Network (SC-CRN). Through the LINCC and the
SCCRN, we have been able to link to the Cancer and Chronic Disease Consortium (CCDC, El
Paso) which is working with Hispanic communities and the South Carolina Baptist Education
and Missionary Convention (BEMC) which is a network of African American churches. Following
the quality criteria for inclusion in evidence reviews conducted by the Community Guide for
Preventive Services, we will adapt existing interventions and evaluate the effectiveness of
these community-based IDM interventions for prostate cancer screening through two different
studies, one at each site. We will first perform formative qualitative research in Hispanic
communities in El Paso, Texas and in African American communities in Columbia, South
Carolina. We will review existing IDM programs and contextual factors pertinent for adoption
and dissemination in these two groups. Using the formative research and the review, we will
adapt existing materials for intervention development in each group. For each study, the
interventions will be evaluated using a pre-post-test delayed intervention comparison group
design. As primary outcomes, we will measure the effect of community-based IDM interventions
on men's knowledge of prostate cancer screening, participation in screening decisions at
their desired level and whether participation was congruent with individual values and
preferences in decision-making.
