Developing Informed Decision Making Materials for Prostate Cancer Screening Decisions


ACPM has received funding from the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion to develop materials that will promote and enhance informed decision making for men considering prostate cancer screening decisions and their providers.The decision aids will: 

  1. Incorporate information about benefits and harms of screening, and patient values
  2. Include consideration of individual patient risks
  3. Include both provider tools/materials and patient tools/materials
  4. Facilitate a dialogue among patients and their providers to promote shared decision making based on best available information regarding benefits, harms, and individual risks

Seeking ACPM members to serve on the Expert Panel 

ACPM and CDC are pulling together a small panel of experts to serve as advisers to the project. The panel will include experts:

  • In prostate cancer and decision aids to discuss current evidence and content in developing decision aids
  • In patient communication to examine options for modality (web app, videos, devices, etc.) and discuss considerations related to patient communication, health literacy, etc.
  • Representing the clinical provider community to discuss needs, facilitators, and barriers to providers using decision aids in primary care settings. 

 Panel members are expected to attend a 2-day workshop in Atlanta within the next few months (travel costs covered). Subsequent work will involve electronic reviews and periodic teleconferences, as necessary.

If you are interested, submit your CV and Statement of Interest on the ACPM website no later October 28, 2016. When completing the form, be sure to select "Prostate Cancer Screening Expert Panel" under Internal Opportunities. In your statement, please describe which category(ies) of expertise you fit, based on the three categories listed above, and your related work and experience. Only current ACPM members are eligible to apply.
