PCa Decision Aids Do Not Sway Men

Print- and Web-based tools presenting the benefits and limitations of PSA testing served to help men resolve their own conflicts regarding screening, but did not change their plans to undergo such testing. Kathryn L. Taylor, PhD, and co-investigators reported online in JAMA Internal Medicine that among 1,879 men randomized to a print-based decision aid (628 patients), a Web-based interactive decision aid (625 patients), or usual care (626 patients), decisional conflict was significantly lower for the intervention groups than for the usual-care patients at one and 13 months. 

Screening rates at 13 months, however, did not differ significantly among groups.
