PATIENT-REPORTED OUTCOMES FOR GAY MEN WITH LOCALIZED PROSTATE CANCER
- To enroll 200 gay men with localized prostate cancer in a cross-sectional study of
prostate cancer outcomes.
- To complete an R01 application using pilot data collected from these patients.
- To complete manuscripts describing the factors that influence quality of life and
treatment satisfaction in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients complete a web-based survey about their disease (biopsy Gleason score, PSA
at diagnosis, and T-stage), treatment (treatment type, time since treatment, and use of
healthcare services [e.g., oral medications for erectile dysfunction]), symptom distress,
and psychosocial factors (ethnicity, health literacy, level of social support, communication
with provider, relationship status, and communication with partner) that affect their
health-related quality of life. The data will be used to provide the information necessary
to tailor an existing prostate cancer survivorship intervention to address the specific
needs of gay men with prostate cancer.
Observational Model: Ecologic or Community, Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
