Prostate Cancer Survivorship 360º is a collaboration-based initiative involving prostate cancer (PC) and survivorship researchers/clinicians from three Canadian prostate centers with the goal of identifying and tracking unmet supportive care needs of patients with localized PC and responding to these needs through survivorship care. The current randomized control trail (RCT) will focus on the development and evaluation of a facilitated electronic Prostate Cancer Survivorship Care Plan (PC-SCP). The aims of this project are: 1) to develop an appropriate and tailored SCP and transition care delivery process; and 2) to conduct an RCT to evaluate whether a personalized PC SCP intervention is more effective than usual care (UC) on patient activation (primary outcome) and access to services, self-Management support, satisfaction with information, HRQoL and cancer worry (secondary outcomes). Data from a multi-site prospective database- Prostate Cancer Survivorship Information System (PC360-IS) will be used to electronically populate the survivorship care plans. Overall, this proposal represents initial steps in uniting the country in sharing programmatic resources, data, expertise, and enthusiasm to transform survivorship care for men with PC and their families.
