Thank you for taking the time to complete this second round of survey. During the first round 57 patients and 73 healthcare professionals took part in the survey. We are extremely grateful to all these participants, and would encourage them to also help us with the second round and kindly complete this survey which includes additional question proposed during the first round.
The EAU Prostate Cancer Guideline Panel and other experts have identified 44 questions they believe are most important to be answered using Big Data. In addition, 12 additional questions were proposed by the respondents (which are relevant for patients with prostate cancer and answerable through BigData) during the first round of this survey. There are currently 56 viable questions. It is important that prioritisation exercise in undertaken to narrow down the number of questions that are regarded as top priority by all stakeholders. Some questions are followed by their PICO (PICO stands for Participants, Intervention, Compactor and Outcome) to make them more clear and/or brief explanation "How could Big Data” help us to answer that question. No attempt has been made to standardise how the questions are framed, they are presented below as they were received from the expert who proposed them.
Please score the importance of the following questions on a scale of 1 (not important) to 9 (critically important). When deciding what score to give, you should consider what impact answering the questions will have on better diagnosis and treatment outcomes for Prostate Cancer.
The first 44 questions are the same as were used in the first round of the survey. We are following Delphi Method for this prioritisation process. Therefore, these 44 questions are contain percentage of patients and healthcare professionals who considered the question “critically important”. Question number 45 (item number 46) onwards do not contain these percentage as these are new questions proposed during the first round of prioritisation process.
