Purpose: The HealthScore Health Coaching Program aims to deliver 6-months of 1:1 home-based health coaching to cancer patients receiving treatment and survivors of any diagnosis. This study hopes to preserve physical function, address unmet physical, nutritional, psychological, social and other needs. Procedures: This will be done through individualized health coaching, weekly symptom survey administration, monthly supportive care questionnaires, and physical assessments at baseline, 3 months and 6 months. Participants: All cancer patients with appointments at UNC Cancer Hospitals, Duke University Hospital, orother cancer hospital
This registry will make it possible to describe real life management of patients with rare actionable fusions and to better understand these cancers. In addition of clinical data from the medical files, a quality of life questionnaire (QLQ-C30) will be complete at inclusion, at each new treatment and then every 6 months. The patients will be followed for a period of at least 2 years after the inclusion. This TRacKING registry is a European collaborative tool to improve the management of patients with actionable fusions, by sharing of data from rare tumor indications.
The purpose of this study is to find out if a telemedicine program for older adults in cancer treatment is a practical way to understand and meet these participants' unique needs. Telemedicine is the use of secure video technology on a desktop computer, laptop, smartphone, or tablet to provide and receive healthcare from a distance. The telemedicine program used in this study is called a tele-geriatric oncology program. It involves the participant and a study nurse meeting by videoconferencing during 2-6 telemedicine visits. As part of the program, the participant and the study nurse will discuss the participant's symptoms and aging-related needs.
The purpose of this study is to find out whether Tibetree Pain Relieving Plaster, an herbal pain relief patch, may be able to reduce this pain. Tibetree Pain Relieving Plaster is available as an over-the-counter (non-prescription) treatment for the temporary relief of minor aches and pains in muscles and joints. This study is the first to test this treatment in people who have had cancer.
Therapeutic massage is the most common non-traditional treatment option offered to improve quality of life, provide comfort and decrease pain in hospice and palliative care settings outside the hospital. Three systematic reviews of data in general pain, surgical and cancer populations found massage to be effective for treating pain versus active comparators. Given the remarkable negative impact on QOL experienced by patients hospitalized with a serious progressive illness, a nationwide opioid crisis in the setting of public concern for untreated pain, and patient demand for integrative therapies, we wish to investigate non-traditional methods of supporting patients in pain and providing clinicians with viable alternatives. Unfortunately, very little is known about optimal delivery of massage interventions in the hospital setting, including dosing parameters such as time and frequency We conducted a single center comparative effectiveness study to evaluate therapeutic massage "dosing" to improve self-reported quality-of-life in hospitalized patients receiving palliative care consultation.
To assess the psychometric properties (validity, reliability and responsiveness) of the QuestOnco tool, an electronic Remote Toxicity Management System, in adult cancer patients receiving an active anti-cancer treatment.
This study will assess feasibility and acceptability of an intervention designed to increase smoking cessation motivation among patients with a cancer not widely known to be smoking related.
Monocentric, prospective cohort pilot study evaluating the feasibility of a online remote monitoring tool during the care of patients over 65 years of age being medically treated for cancer.
The County Council of Region Skåne, Sweden, has recently initiated Targeted Health Dialogues in primary care. The prevention program includes health dialogues provided by specially trained personnel, collection of clinical and laboratory data as well as questionnaire data on, e.g., individual health and health behaviors. So far, it enrolls all 40-year old Swedish and foreign-born inhabitants in the county and it will also include all 50- and 60-year old persons within a near future. A research project will be integrated within the program where the collected data will be linked, on the individual level, to national and regional data on hospital admissions, clinical diagnoses from specialist clinics and primary care, causes of death, and prescriptions. The individual linkages will also include population data on sociodemographic characteristics, neighborhood of residence and family relations. Blood samples will be collected for analyses of molecular biomarkers. The research project will examine associations between potential predictors and future risk of cardiovascular diseases and other serious diseases, such as cancer, and also whether the effect of the prevention program is modified by these potential predictors. The effect of the intervention will be examined, and whether the protocol needs to be modified in order to develop more precise and personalized medicine.
An article to present how cancer patients were taken in charge at Lyon University Hospital Cancer Institute (France) during the first peak of the COVID-19 pandemic between March and May 2020 is under writing. It will present strategies that were set-up to avoid cross-contamination between patients and caregivers, patients treatment adaptation (timing, dosage,..) and how consultations, multidisciplinary team meetings, surgical procedures and clinical trials were impacted. Part of this article will also illustrate the characteristics of patients with a solid tumor(s) that have been hospitalized during this timeframe for the COVID-19. How cancer type and stage affect Covid severity and mortality.will be described for a small sample of patients (44). These qualitative figures will be compared to literature current state of the art.
