Specialty: Primary Care, Primary sub-specialty: Cancer; UKCRC code/ Disease: Cancer/ Malignant neoplasms of urinary tract


Intervention group: Intervention practices are recruited on the basis of their being willing to send practice nurses for Macmillan Cancer follow up training and the additional prostate specific training delivered by members of the project team.
Patients will be invited to complete the CHAT-P holistic needs assessment online either alone, with family, friends, peer supporter, or a member of the research team, as is their preference. Links are provided within CHAT-P to sources of advice and information depending on the needs identified. Following completion of the first of 3 HNAs the patient will be directed to make an appointment with the Practice Nurse to discuss any issues of concern identified and personalise the automated Care Plan. The nurse will discuss current concerns which may be physical issues arising from prostate cancer treatment, emotional or social issues, or concerns related to aspects of care. The nurse will discuss aspects of lifestyle and self-management with the patient and where relevant help patients set realistic goals. Where indicated, the nurse will advise the patient regarding further sources of support and advice on specific issues. The nurse will highlight matters of clinical concern to the secondary care team or the GP as necessary. The HNA will be recompleted at intervals specified in our study timeline. All intervention group participants will complete the HNA at least three times during the 8/9-month study period, and hence may have at least three planned follow-up appointments with the Practice Nurse.

Control group: Control practices include any practices within the same CCG who would agree to recruit men with prostate cancer to complete the outcome measures.
Participating patients will receive usual care for the duration of the study and will complete study outcome measures at baseline and at 8/9 months.
