Discontinuing PSA Screening: Perspectives From PCPs

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedIn

Age and life expectancy appear to be considered often by primary care providers (PCPs) when considering the discontinuation of PSA screening. Nearly 60% of PCPs considered both age and life expectancy in their decision, while 12.2% did not consider either factor. Patient expectations and time constraints were reported by 74.4% and 66.4% of PCPs, respectively, as barriers to discontinuing PSA screening.
