Study protocol for the DETECTIVE study: an international collaborative study to develop consensus statements for deferred treatment with curative intent for localised prostate cancer. European urology [online], 75(4), pages 699-702. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.eururo.2018.11.009

Deferred active treatment (DAT) strategies, including active surveillance and active monitoring, are a recognised management option for men with localised low-risk prostate cancer. However, there is uncertainty due to heterogeneity of patient selecti...
