NCT ID: NCT06243107 Completed - Cancer Clinical Trials

Promoting the Application of Tai Chi to Improve the Fatigue in Cancer Patients

Start date: May 1, 2019
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Cancer patients often experience Cancer-Related Fatigue (CRF) due to surgeries, radiation therapy, and/or chemotherapy. CRF does not improve with sleep or rest and not only affects daily activities but can also significantly reduce quality of life. Therefore, finding ways to alleviate fatigue is crucial for cancer patients. Literature indicates that exercise has demonstrated effectiveness in reducing fatigue. Qigong/Tai Chi, based on movement, is a traditional Chinese mind-body practice falling within the range of low to moderate-intensity aerobic exercise. There is no consistent consensus on the effectiveness and frequency of Qigong/Tai Chi for CRF in different cancer patients. Hence, this study aims to investigate through empirical nursing procedures whether "the practice of Qigong/Tai Chi by cancer patients can improve participants' fatigue. Researchers hope that the results of this study can serve as a reference for future clinical applications in alleviating fatigue among cancer patients.

NCT ID: NCT06191679 Completed - Cancer Clinical Trials

Decision Aid for Education and Support About Cancer Treatment

Start date: July 8, 2020
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The goals of this clinical trial are to evaluate DECIDES, a web-based decision support application that provides education about cancer and cancer treatment and provides support to encourage adolescent and young adult (AYA) patients, their caregivers, and oncology health care providers to make informed decisions about cancer treatment together. The main questions this study aims to answer are: - Is DECIDES acceptable, usable, and feasible for AYA, caregivers, and oncology health care providers? - Is DECIDES helpful for AYA, caregivers, and oncology health care providers that are making cancer treatment decisions together? AYA and caregiver participants will complete a questionnaire and be randomly assigned to participate in one of three groups: (1) Usual Care, (2) DECIDES, or (3) DECIDES + Coach. Participants in 'Usual Care' will continue to have access to their oncology health care team for questions related to cancer and cancer treatment, as per usual standard of care. Participants in both 'DECIDES' and 'DECIDES + Coach' groups will receive access to DECIDES, and those in 'DECIDES + Coach' will receive additional live, coach-assisted support. After 8 weeks, AYA and caregivers will complete a follow-up questionnaire and those in the 'DECIDES' and 'DECIDES + Coach' groups will complete a semi-structured qualitative interview. Oncology health care providers of participating AYA will be invited to participate in a questionnaire and semi-structured qualitative interview. Researchers will compare groups to see if AYA and caregivers that receive access to DECIDES (with and without coach-assisted support) report more positive decision-making processes compared to those that receive usual standard of care.

NCT ID: NCT06167720 Completed - Cancer Clinical Trials

Suicide Risk Prediction in Cancer Patients

Start date: January 1, 1979
Study type: Observational

Previous studies have found that the suicide risk of cancer patients is influenced by socioeconomic factors, clinical characteristics, and environmental factors. But prediction model with multiple predictors for suicide risk in cancer patients is limited. The aim of this study is to assess the association of socioeconomic factors, clinical characteristics and meteorological factors with cancer patients' suicide, based on retrospective cohorts, and to establish a suicide risk prediction model with multiple predictors for cancer patients.

NCT ID: NCT06143189 Completed - Cancer Clinical Trials

Well-being Biomarkers (BIOSMILE) & Psychology Analyses in Women With Cancer After Hospital Clowns and Hosting Effects

Start date: August 21, 2020
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The goal of this interventional study is to evaluate the impact of Hospital Clowns (HCs) intervention, besides to hospital hosting conditions, in the well-being of adult female patients during ambulatory chemotherapy. The main question[s] it aims to answer are: - Do the short-term HCs interventions during ambulatory chemotherapy may increase well-being of adult cancer patients in comparison to the hospital hosting conditions? - Do the short-term HCs interventions, besides the hospital hosting conditions, have effects on well-being biomarkers in association with psychological outcomes? Participants self-collect a sample of saliva followed by psychological assessment, at a first time-point (basal) and at a final time-point (~after 90 minutes of basal) (pre- and post-test), during the chemotherapy treatment session. Researchers have compared an HCs intervention plus hosting conditions - experimental group, EG, and hosting conditions only - control group, CG, by the repeated measures of pre- and post-test of biomarkers in saliva and the psychological functioning evaluations, to see the degree of the impact of HCs intervention in the well-being of the patients in comparison with normal hosting conditions. Each HCs intervention lasts around 15 minutes, and it is performed in the middle of the procedure between pre- and post-test.

This information will be analysed and used to inform the questions asked in a separate, subsequent, qualitative study.

NCT ID: NCT06054048 Completed - Cancer Clinical Trials

Open Video System in Medicine (oVID)

Start date: February 1, 2019
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Currently, there are no telemedical visits between patients and/or their relatives and a palliative physician for the evaluation of symptom and progress monitoring. This is done during visits of the patient by the coordinators and palliative physicians of the palliative network/PKD Münster (PKD = Palliative Care Consultation Service) and/or the general practitioners. Upon enrollment in the Palliative Network/PKD Münster, patients receive a 24-hour emergency telephone number. This is staffed by a caregiver who coordinates the deployment of other caregivers / palliative care physicians according to the information provided by the patient / family members. If patients are randomized to the "telemedicine" group, they have the option of using ELVI (ELVI = electronic visit) in addition to conventional care, and thus the possibility of televisits with physicians or nurses. In this case, they receive access data for ELVI, i.e., an access code for a virtual waiting room. In addition, patients will be given questionnaires at discharge to be completed on the day of discharge and on days 7, and 14. The primary objective of this randomized trial is to demonstrate that telemedically managed patients are not relevantly inferior to conventionally managed patients in terms of change in Integrated Palliative care Outcome Scale (IPOS) from the day of discharge (non-inferiority question), although the possibility of televisiting may result in less frequent physician visits to the patient's home.
