RAND conducted a study to develop the structure necessary to begin evaluating the quality of care provided to men with early-stage prostate cancer. The central outcome is a list of candidate indicators of quality of care, endorsed as appearing to be valid, feasible, and appropriate for further testing in a population-based sample.

The panel endorsed four measures of structure, twelve measures of process, and six measures of outcome. Based upon their results, the researchers also offer four recommendations as bases for further research.
