Summary: There is a pressing need to develop a personalized, value-based decisional tool for bladder cancer patients undergoing radical cystectomy (bladder removal) and urinary diversion to help them with communication with the physicians, shared decision making, and preparation for disease-management and follow-up care. The proposed intervention, the Personal Patient Profile - Bladder Cancer (P3-BC), will be the first intervention to address these issues. Results of this pilot randomized feasibility study will provide evidence of the feasibility and acceptability of the P3-BC and will guide further refinement of the tool for a larger experimental trial, with potential dissemination of the program via the Internet and hand-held computing devices.

Inclusion Criteria:

- Patients: cystectomy for MIBC and NMIBC;

- at least 18 years;

- able to communicate in English; and

- competent to give consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Existence of other cancers or ongoing cancer treatment.
