Adaptation of the American Cancer Society (ACS) Early Detection of Prostate Cancer Patient Decision Aid for Spanish Speaking Men
Cognitive Testing Interviews:
If you agree to take part in this study, you will complete a questionnaire about your
demographics (age, race, country of origin), education and family history of prostate
cancer. This questionnaire should take about 5 minutes to complete.
Then you will take part in a one on one interview with a bilingual member of the study
staff. You will be shown draft versions of a slide show about prostate cancer screening.
You will then be asked to describe the information in the slides in your own words. You
will also be asked about how easy or hard the information is to understand. The interview
should last about 1 hour.
Length of Study:
Answering the questionnaire and participating in the interview will take about 1 to 1½ hours
of your time. Your participation in this study will be over when the interview is complete.
Evaluation Focus Groups:
If you agree to take part in this study, you will complete 2 questionnaires about your
demographics (age, race, country of origin), education, family history of prostate cancer,
and knowledge of prostate cancer and its screening. These questionnaires should take about
10 minutes to complete. After the questionnaires, you will take part in a focus group with
other men and members of the study.
In the focus group, a bilingual study staff member will lead the discussion by showing the
group slides about prostate cancer screening. A doctor or healthcare professional designee
will be available to answer questions about prostate cancer screening.
After viewing the slides, you will complete another questionnaire about what you know about
prostate cancer. It will also ask what you thought about the information in the slides.
Length of Study:
Answering the questionnaires and participating in the focus group will take about 1 to 1½
hours of your time. Your participation in this study will be over when the focus group
session is complete.
This is an investigational study.
Up to 60 participants will take part in this multicenter study. Up to 10 will be enrolled
at MD Anderson.
