Expanding an Active Surveillance Cohort to Improve Survivorship for Black Men with Favorable Risk Prostate Cancer

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Our overarching goal is to improve the safety and uptake of active surveillance in Black and men served in public medical centers to improve survivorship and reduce disparities in PCa mortality. Hence we will address this goal with the following Specific Aims:
Aim 1: Compare the degree of adherence with the NCCN AS protocol at 18 months in men who received MRI+GPS, GPS-only or neither before embarking on AS.
Aim 2: Compare the ability of MRI+GPS, GPS-only or neither to predict tumor progression over 18 months.
Aim 3: Identify the main barriers and facilitators to active surveillance selection in a Black-enriched population who received confirmatory testing.
