PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To model the trajectory of patient reported outcomes (PROs), as measured by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) Global Health Scale (version [v]1.2), among men newly diagnosed with prostate cancer who are engaged in either active surveillance or active treatment, while enrolled in an e-health coaching program.

Ia. To compare the trajectories of (PROs) between men who are engaged in either active surveillance or active treatment, while enrolled in an e-health coaching program.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate the effect of digital health coaching program on:

Ia. Physical and mental health of men newly diagnosed with prostate cancer as measured by the subscales of the PROMIS Global Health Scale (v 1.2).

Ib. The global health outcomes of men with prostate cancer who are in active treatment by active treatment type (i.e. surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, or a combination of these methodologies).

Ic. The symptom experience of men newly diagnosed with prostate cancer as measured by the MD Anderson Symptom Inventory (MDASI).

Id. The frequency of emergency room visits and hospital admissions for patients receiving treatment in the ambulatory setting.

II. To evaluate the relationship between financial toxicity, as measured by the Consumer Score for Financial Toxicity (COST), and quality of life, as measured by the Expanded Prostate Cancer Index Composite for Clinical Practice (EPIC-CP).
