Personal Patient Profile - Prostate (P3P)

A Shared Decision Making Tool

What is P3P?

Personal Patient Profile Prostate (P3P) is a tool to help newly

diagnosed prostate cancer patients make an informed decision

with their physician about their treatment options. P3P was

made available by TrueNTH, a Movember project dedicated to

improving the quality of prostate cancer care. With MUSIC’s

goal to make Michigan the best place in the world

for prostate cancer care, MUSIC urologists partnered with

TrueNTH to provide P3P to their patients.



If your prostate biopsy shows prostate cancer and you schedule a counseling visit with a MUSIC urologist, you will be sent a link to your email, asking you to complete a questionnaire before your next appointment. You will be asked questions about your health, quality of life, and personal preferences. Your responses to these questions will help you and your doctor discuss your optimal treatment options based on your preferences, values, and goals.

Step 1 – Email Notification

You will receive an email from TrueNTH inviting you to participate in P3P. The subject will read “From Dr. (Your Physicians Name): Please Complete Your Questionnaire” and will include instructions on accessing the P3P questionnaire.

Step 2 – P3P Questionnaire

The one-time questionnaire will take about 15 minutes of your time and help prepare you for your visit with your doctor. To view a copy of the questions you will be asked, please click here. Once you complete the questionnaire online, your responses will be presented in a report to you and your doctor.

Step 3 – Your Next Appointment with your Physician

You and your doctor will review your responses to the P3P questionnaire and together discuss treatment options that are best for you in your prostate cancer care.
