Discontinuing PSA Screening: Perspectives From PCPs | News Brief

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.
