Clinical Trial Summary

The purpose of this study is to compare two hypnotic interventions for Black women with advanced cancer pain in preparation for a well-powered phase III study. The investigators plan to enroll 30 adult Black women with advanced cancer pain in a 2-arm pilot randomized controlled trial (RCT). The primary aim will be to evaluate the feasibility of conducting the 2-arm clinical trial. It is hypothesized that at least 75% of participants in both study arms will complete study requirements. The secondary aims will be to evaluate the participant's experience with the intervention and to determine the effect size of the intervention on pain severity.


Clinical Trial Description

Envision is a randomized, 2-arm, mixed-methods pilot study to evaluate the feasibility of translating a promising in-person hypnosis intervention for advanced cancer pain into a culturally appropriate, remotely delivered hypnosis intervention for pain in Black women with advanced cancer. The study is 6 weeks long and does not require any in-person visits. If a breast cancer survivor is determined eligible, they will be educated on the purpose, requirements, and procedures. If interested, participants will be emailed the consent form and will schedule a virtual consent/baseline visit. After consent is obtained, the participant will be randomly assigned to one of two types of hypnotic relaxation to be used alongside current pain treatment using 1:1 randomization and given a study number. The participant will complete online surveys at the virtual baseline visit. An MP3 player with hypnotic relaxation audio files will be sent to the participant's address and a virtual education visit will be scheduled. At this second virtual visit, participants will receive education about their study arm and a start date will be agreed upon for week 1. Beginning week 1 and continuing through week 6, participants will listen to their assigned hypnotic relaxation audio files daily and be asked to complete a weekly practice log. Participants will also continue to meet with study staff virtually for weekly check-ins. At these weekly meetings, progress and adverse events will be assessed and relevant online surveys will be completed. ;
