Cancer survivors generally have low physical activity (PA) levels. While literature shows some evidence of improvement in PA following technology-based PA promotion interventions among cancer survivors, high-quality randomised control trials (RCTs), with objective measures of PA and longer-term follow-up, are lacking. Using a theoretical framework that addresses action control in addition to intention formation may enhance intervention effect. The Multi-process action control (M-PAC) framework is an extension of the traditional intention-formation theories, incorporating constructs that address the translation of intention into behaviour and continual action control. After comprehensively searching, no previous or ongoing RCTs have investigated the efficacy of a technology-based PA promotion intervention in cancer survivors that is designed based on the M-PAC framework. Investigators therefore propose a RCT to evaluate a technology-based intervention (WExercise) to support the promotion of PA in cancer survivors.
The goal of this clinical trial is to study the effects of Immersive Virtual Reality in patients with cancer undergoing chemotherapy. The main questions it aims to answer are: - Could the immersive virtual reality application prevents or reduces anxiety, prevents or reduces fatigue, prevents or reduces pain, improves therapeutic adherence, prevents or reduces adverse events, then cancer patients treated with narrative medicine, and then cancer patients in standard care only? - Could the immersive virtual reality application show symptoms of cybersickness? Participants will be randomly allocated with balanced allocation ratio 1: 1: 1 into three groups: 1) Virtual Reality group; 2) Narrative medicine group; 3) Standard care group. In the virtual reality arm, patients will use a Virtual Reality headset. The multimedia contents in VR, will have a video quality from 4K to 8K, 360 degrees, and High Definition audio stereo. In control arm, patients will be free to choose different activities during the infusion of chemotherapy, such as conversation with nurses, doctors, trainees, reading, writing, watching television, listening to music or videos on their smartphone. In narrative medicine arm, patients will express their subjective experience regarding to the chemotherapy through writing. The experience will be written in free form by the patient and will cover both the cognitive, emotional and perceptual aspects. A nurse will always be available to guide the patient in the activity of expressing cognitive, emotional and perceptual contents. Researchers will compare the Virtual Reality group, Narrative Medicine group, Standard care group, to see the effects regarding to anxiety, fatigue, pain, improves therapeutic adherence and adverse events.
The rationale of the ROSY-T study is to continue to provide study treatment for patients who have participated in a parent study with osimertinib and who are continuing to derive clinical benefit from treatment at the end of such studies, as judged by the Investigator.
Health literacy refers to personal and relational factors affecting a persons ability to aquire, understand and use health information and health services. In a need assessment study, it was found that there is a need to focus on health literacy factors in the follow-up of people with cancer in the health care services. Thus, this project evaluate the effect of a health literacy intervention in cancer. The intervention provides patients with nurse-led tailored follow-up by phone/digital/personal meetings that addresses their individual HL needs, particularly those needs that impact their quality of life, symptom burden, self-management, and health economic costs. Our main goal is to improve the patients' health literacy, with secondary goals of improving their quality of life, symptom burden, and self-management, and reducing their health care costs.
This projects aims to characterize dietary habits and nutrition quality of pro-vegetarian diets as compared to omnivorous diets. It also aims to stablish gut microbial and metabolit profiles of this dietary pattern, in order to elucidate the role of plant-based diets in cancer prevention and treatment.
Young adult cancer survivors (18-39y) are at increased risk of financial distress. This study seeks to better understand the financial challenges experienced by these individuals via quantitative serial assessments, study-based financial navigator encounters and an end of study qualitative interview.
This is a Phase 1/2, open-label, multi-center, first-in-human, dose escalation and cohort expansion study evaluating multiple doses and schedules of subcutaneously administered JK08 in patients with unresectable locally, advanced or metastatic cancer.
Cancer affects mostly older adults. The development of Geriatric Oncology has greatly improved the management of older patients with the Comprehensive Geriatric Assessments (CGA) being conducted before cancer treatment. A CGA encompasses several dimensions such as comorbidities, but also functional, nutritional or cognitive domains. The International guidelines recommended establishing cooperation with pharmacists as part of the CGA in order to review prescriptions of older patients with cancer and to avoid adverse side effects of treatment. However, the CGA before starting oncological treatment offer is limited in France, especially in some regions which are less populated, or where access to medical centers are difficult. The main objective of our work is to evaluate the impact of telemedicine in geriatric oncology consultation of unexplained re-hospitalization rate at 3 months in the acute care unit. The secondary objectives are to evaluate the impact of telemedicine on unexplained re-hospitalization rate at 6 months, on the secondary toxicities, on the postoperative complications in patients treated surgically, on the overall survival and on the acceptance of the pharmaceutical recommendations by the physicians, but also the impact of telemedicine in medico-economic terms and the satisfaction of patients and oncologists benefiting from teleconsultation. It is a multicenter, prospective, randomized study involving 500 patients in 9 participating centers, including 6 peripheral hospitals. The experiment will be represented by the implementation of telemedicine in oncology centers where this expertise is not very available, allowing them to benefit from geriatric oncology teleconsultation and pharmaceutical tele-expertise carried out by three university hospitals. Patients recruited by oncologists, according to the inclusion criteria, will give their written consent to participate. Centers were randomized. In the control arm, patients will be treated according to the usual oncological management as defined for each type of cancer. In the interventional arm, patients will benefit from a CGA with a geriatric oncology teleconsultation as well as a pharmaceutical tele-expertise before the initiation of oncological treatment.
Young adults aged 18-26 engage in a number of behaviors that increase their risk of developing cancer later in life including sedentary lifestyles, unhealthy eating, nicotine produce us, heavy drinking of alcohol, increased UV exposure, and incomplete uptake of HPV vaccination. A multi-risk factor campaign will be developed to reduce these cancer risk behaviors and delivered to young adults over social media, a popular channel that can reach nearly all young adults. The campaign will be evaluated for effectiveness in a rigorous randomized trial with measures of moderate to vigorous physical activity, healthy eating patterns, nicotine product use, alcohol intake, sunburn prevalence, and HPV vaccination uptake.
