Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) of an Online Multimedia Program to Boost Coping & Function for Prostate Cancer Survivors. A Study of The Cancer Institute of New Jersey Oncology Group (CINJOG)

We propose to develop and evaluate a comprehensive and innovative multimedia program designed to facilitate the post-treatment transition into survivorship. The design of the proposed intervention, the Virtual Survivorship Resource Center for Prostate Cancer (VSRC-PC), will be theoretically based on the team's Cognitive-Social Health Information Processing Model. The VSRC-PC will focus on promoting adaptive coping within four key post-treatment domains: 1) Physical Dysfunction (e.g., physical symptoms); 2) Emotional Well- Being (e.g., fear of recurrence); 3) Interpersonal Concerns (e.g., sexual intimacy issues); and 4) Practical Barriers (e.g., medical follow-up challenges). The proposed research will be the first RCT to evaluate not only a comprehensive but also highly disseminable and self-sustaining intervention for facilitating post-treatment adaptation among early-stage Pca survivors. The proposed research will be the first RCT to evaluate not only a comprehensive but also highly disseminable and self-sustaining intervention for facilitating post-treatment adaptation among early-stage Pca survivors.
