Tobacco Treatment Comparison for Cancer Care

Start date: March 1, 2024
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

This pilot comparative effectiveness trial will compare two active smoking cessation treatments in terms of effectiveness, equity across patient subpopulations, and efficiency among adult patients diagnosed with cancer within the past 3 years. An enhanced treatment comprising 12 weeks of varenicline treatment and 7 smoking cessation coaching calls with a cancer focus will be compared against an active comparator modeled after standard quitline treatments (2 weeks of nicotine patch therapy with 3 phone coaching calls). Approximately 50 participants will be recruited to generate estimates of the effects, acceptability, costs, and equity of enhanced treatment (vs. standard treatment), with the primary outcome being abstinence from smoking 26 weeks after trying to quit.

Multi-professional Care Pathway and Network for the Promotion of Needs-oriented, Resident-oriented Exercise Therapy for Oncological Patients

Start date: December 1, 2023
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

MOVE-ONKO is developing and implementing a guideline-based, multi-professional care pathway for the promotion and therapy of exercise for cancer patients. This pathway intended to serve as an interface between oncological care and existing or developing exercise therapy services in the local area of the participating hospitals. Needs- and side-effect-oriented care pathways are intended to give as many patients as possible access to quality-assured exercise therapy services close to home and thus to the supportive potential of exercise. The new care pathway will be develop in year 1 (phase 1) and will be established at 7 Comprehensive Cancer Centers (CCCs) in 3 model regions Heidelberg-Frankfurt-Mainz, Dresden-Berlin and Freiburg-Tübingen (phase 2) in Germany, as well as adapted accordingly in organ cancer centers and with established oncological care providers (phase 3 - Outreach). The aim is to ensure that exercise promotion and therapy can be integrated into standard care as comprehensively and sustainably as possible. The implementation project will be evaluated according to the achievement of implementation and intervention goals. The implementation goals are utilization (reach) and actual implementation. Factors for successful implementation will be identified and incorporated into the procedure in phase 3 (outreach). Intervention goals are mapped at provider and patient level in both phases. They include improving physical functioning, increasing physical activity behavior, improving exercise-related health literacy, increasing motivation to exercise and increasing patient participation. For this purpose, patients with a cancer disease undergoing acute therapy aged 18 and over who are cared for in participating centers are surveyed four times over a period of 24 weeks using standardized questionnaires (baseline (t0) before the intervention, follow-up after 4 (t1), 12 (t2) and 24 (t3) weeks). In addition, the participating managers and service providers of the centers in phase 2 (implementation phase) and phase 3 (outreach phase) will be surveyed using standardized questionnaires and in-depth interviews. The longitudinal evaluation design enables an analysis of the changes in care structures and processes, the success of implementation and the experiences and outcomes of patients

e-IMPAQc Systematic Assessment of Patient Reported Outcomes in Cancer Care

Start date: November 3, 2020
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Purpose: The Electronic Implementation of Patient and Caregiver Reported Outcomes across cancer centres in Quebec project, or e-IMPAQc, was launched in 2017. e-IMPAQc's goal is to actively engage patients, their caregivers, healthcare professionals (HCPs), managers, policy makers, researchers and IT personnel to co-develop, implement, and evaluate an evidence-informed electronic patient-reported outcomes (e-PRO) screening and management program across Quebec. Methods: e-IMPAQc built on the Improving Patient Experience and Health Outcomes Collaborative (iPEHOC) project, the first initiative in the province to implement e-PRO screening and was rolled out in three phases. e-IMPAQc has five main components: 1) primary and secondary standardized e-PRO questionnaires and algorithm; 2) summary report for clinicians with alert system; 3) summary report for patients, with tailored notifications regarding symptom severity; 4) self-management fact sheets library; and 5) clinical dashboard. Phase 1 included initiating change management and the co-development of the e-PRO algorithm with patients, their caregivers, HCPs, managers, policy makers, researchers and IT personnel (herein collectively referred as stakeholders) across seven cancer centres. The iPEHOC algorithm was used as a starting point given its successful implementation in one of the participating cancer centres for several years. Phase 1 also included feasibility work to establish a caregiver-reported outcomes (CROs) algorithm as well as the identification and configuration of appropriate electronic platforms on which to house e-IMPAQc. In Phase 2 the focus was on preparing for imminent implementation through workflow mapping and putting in place implementation support (e.g., site coordinators). A pilot of e-IMPAQc (excluding CROs) was also undertaken at one of the participating centres. In Phase 3, e-IMPAQc is being sequentially rolled out to as many cancer centres as possible and then evaluated. Qualitative and quantitative methods are used to document the process of implementation, patient and caregiver, and knowledge transfer (KT) outcomes.

Penn Medicine Biobank Return of Results Program

Start date: October 20, 2023
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The goal of this hybrid type 1 effectiveness-implementation study is to evaluate and compare different ways of delivering genetic research results to participants. The main questions the study aims to answer are: - Is sharing actionable genetic research results with participants through a multimedia patient-informed eHealth intervention (e.g. patient portal) no worse than sharing results by telephone or videoconference with a genetic counselor? - Will research participants access an eHealth educational intervention or chatbot education to learn about research results being offered and the option to decline learning their individual research results and how frequently participants choose to decline actionable research results? - Who benefits less and more from digital intervention with return of actionable research results and what barriers exist to using these tools for return of research results outside this study? Participants in the biobank will be offered digital tools to learn about research results being offered and the option to decline receiving these results. Those who don't decline and have an actionable result will be randomly assigned to receive their results with a genetic counselor or through an eHealth portal. Participants will complete surveys before and after receipt of results to understand patient experiences with these methods of education and return of results to determine if digital tools can be used to help ensure more patients get access to research results which could impact their health.

Blue-Button Regional Trial Screening

Start date: December 1, 2023
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Enrollment in clinical trials predicts better survival in the most common cancer types including breast cancer, and testing and proving the efficacy of new treatments relies on successfully conducting clinical trials. However, approximately one fifth of cancer clinical trials fail due to insufficient patient enrollment, and only about 6% of adult cancer patients are enrolled onto clinical trials. Barriers remain for patient participation in clinical trials, especially for cancer patients. One specific barrier is trial identification and awareness of trial availability for both patients and providers. This trial tests the hypothesis that by integrating clinical trial eligibility screening into part of routine care in a way that requires little effort and by making that screening site agnostic, the Blue-Button matching functionality will increase overall cancer clinical trial enrollment, and may also result in more diverse clinical trial participants that better reflect the U.S. cancer population. Moreover, regardless of changes in enrollment, the Blue-button screening may allow screening to be done more quickly with fewer human resources when compared to current methods. Identification of potential trial opportunities, however, is only the first barrier to trial enrollment, so this study includes additional examination of barriers subsequent to the identification of relevant trials by cataloging patient-level barriers that prevent enrollment of patients in identified trials.
