The primary objective of this project is to develop and evaluate a Spanish-language slide set
for administration in group settings, adapted from the content of the current guidelines and
existing, self-administered ACS early detection decision aid.
A guide for educators will accompany the slide set so that materials may be distributed on a
broad scale at the completion of the project. It is expected that these products will be made
available to community-based educators and screening programs to be used in support of an IDM
process for early detection of prostate cancer with Spanish-speaking men.
To conduct an extensive review of the literature and other resources to identify themes
related to early detection, concerns and beliefs about prostate cancer in Hispanic men.
Findings will be used to adapt the slideset.
To cognitive test the Spanish-language decision aid slide set with Hispanic men To conduct
focus groups to evaluate the acceptability of the adapted slide set with Spanish-speaking
Hispanic men who are candidates for prostate cancer screening. Participants will be tested
for their knowledge of prostate cancer and acceptability of materials (e.g. length, clarity,
amount and balance of information provided).
