Type of Study:


Study Design:

Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective

Outcome Measure:

pain score

Outcome Description:

Pain score changes will be correlated with each of the following: patient rating of change in pain, as well as changes in patient functional status, analgesic use, and various measures of disease status (imaging, PSA, circulating tumor cells). The distribution-based approach is to estimate meaningful change as one-half a standard deviation of the sample mean pain score.

Outcome Time Frame:
