P3P is a web-based program to help men prepare for making a decision, with their doctors, about how to manage a diagnosis of early stage prostate cancer. A recent national study* showed that using P3P reduced the amount of conflict experienced by men while making a decision.

This newest version of P3P (2017) has been developed in collaboration between the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston and the Clinical Informatics Research Group at the University of Washington in Seattle. The content of P3P was last updated in May, 2016 with the input of clinical professionals at:

  • Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
  • Duke University
  • Emory University
  • Michigan Urological Surgery Improvement Collaborative (MUSIC)
  • Moffitt Cancer Center
  • University of North Carolina
