NCT ID: NCT06356363 Not yet recruiting - Cancer Clinical Trials

Development of a Questionnaire on Patients' Perception of Their Oncology Care Pathway (Onco-PREMs)

Start date: June 1, 2024
Study type: Observational

Healthcare systems are evolving, giving increasing prominence to the patient-centered model, accompanied by objective and perceived outcomes. PREMs (Patient Reported Experience Measures) are used to assess how patients feel about their experience of care. PREMs enable patients to take an active role in their own care, and enable healthcare establishments to identify areas for improvement that can be incorporated into their quality processes. In oncology, the collection of patient-perceived quality regarding their care pathway would enable better coordination of their care. While a few initiatives have emerged in the field of PREMs, the development of a reliable questionnaire assessing patient perception of their care pathway in oncology remains a challenge.

Electroacupuncture in Symptom Management After Cytoreductive Surgery and Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy

Start date: May 15, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The investigators are conducting this research study is to evaluate the feasibility (recruitment, compliance, safety, and acceptance) of using electroacupuncture (EA) to manage complex symptoms such as pain, nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, and insomnia in patients who have undergone Cytoreductive Surgery and Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy. Additionally, the investigators are aiming to determine the effectiveness of EA in reducing these symptoms, and to examine how EA impacts important biomarkers, or proteins in the blood, that can be used as indicators or signs of these symptoms.

NCT ID: NCT06338475 Not yet recruiting - Cancer Clinical Trials

A Biobehavioral Intervention for Latino/Hispanic Young Adults With Cancer

Start date: May 1, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Building upon the results of a single-arm trial designed to investigate the feasibility and acceptability of a novel intervention, Goal-focused Emotion-Regulation Therapy (GET), this trial is a randomized-controlled biobehavioral pilot trial of GET versus a time-and attention matched control (Instrumental Supportive Listening; ISL) in Latino/Hispanic young adult cancer survivors. Outcomes include improved distress symptoms, emotion regulation, goal navigation skills, and changes in stress-sensitive biomarkers. Participants will be randomized to receive six sessions of GET or ISL delivered over eight weeks. In addition to indicators of intervention feasibility, the investigators will measure primary and secondary psychological outcomes prior to (T0), immediately after (T1), and twelve weeks after intervention (T2). Additionally, identified biomarkers will be measured at baseline and at T1, and T2.

Impact of Onco-sexology Support on the Quality of Life of Patients Newly Diagnosed for Cancer

Start date: April 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Onco-sexology as a supportive care for patients treated for cancer is still rarely discussed or even non-existent in 2022. However, it's recommended to integrate the preservation of sexual health throughout the treatment and post-cancer process, given the impact of cancer, treatments and the importance of intimate life for a majority of patients. Onco-sexology is one of the supportive care services validated by The French National Cancer Institute (INCa). It is also an objective of the 2014-2019 cancer plan and the 2017-2030 national sexual health strategy plan. Although sexuality is one of the fundamental needs of the human being, including in the case of a chronic disease or cancer diagnosis, the lack of training of health professionals to deal with intimate life, the difficulty to exchange on this subject between caregivers and patients, the lack of financial support for onco-sexology consultations, are all obstacles to the global management of oncology patients. However, it's a request from patients to be able to discuss the subject in an intimate way with a professional. While onco-sexology is already recommended as supportive care, a study on the impact of the delay in the management of sexual difficulties on quality of life could provide a sufficient level of evidence to change the practices and the care pathway of the oncology patient. Our objective is to study whether early management in onco-sexology has an impact on quality of life compared to late management (ie onco-sexology consultation before vs. after introduction of systemic oncological treatment).

NCT ID: NCT06332274 Not yet recruiting - Cancer Clinical Trials

tislelizUMaB in canceR Patients With molEcuLar residuaL Disease

Start date: May 2024
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

Numerous studies have shown that even when imaging does not reveal the presence of cancer cells, traces of tumor DNA (i.e. originating from cancer cells) can be detected in the blood of certain patients: this is called molecular residual disease (MRD). When such traces are detected (we speak of MRD+ status), the risk of relapse is much higher than when there is no circulating tumor DNA (MRD - status). Given the success of immunotherapy in treating patients with metastatic disease in a variety of tumor types, there is enormous enthusiasm for expanding the use of immunotherapy to people with cancer at an early stage. UMBRELLA is a biology-driven trial designed to study the impact of systemic treatment with tislelizumab monotherapy after detection of MRD+ status after completion of surgery and perioperative treatments in patients with cancer of a solid tumor. Residual disease (MRD) will be determined by optimized detection and precise monitoring of circulating tumor DNA, enabling early detection of recurrence and disease monitoring, including in patients without MRD [MRD(-)].

NCT ID: NCT06329531 Not yet recruiting - Cancer Clinical Trials

Validation of the Screen of Cancer Survivorship - Occupational Therapy Services (SOCS-OTS) Tool for Use in a Physical Medicine Rehabilitation Clinic

Start date: April 15, 2024
Study type: Observational

To compare the results of the SOCS-OTS to another standardized screening measure that is currently being used by rehabilitation services at MD Anderson Cancer Center and to ensure that the SOCS-OTS correctly identifies those individuals needing OT services in cancer care.

NCT ID: NCT06323707 Not yet recruiting - Cancer Clinical Trials

The IMPACT Implementation-Effectiveness Trial

Start date: March 15, 2024
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

More Canadians are surviving cancer, however, individuals with cancer live with side effects for years after treatments have ended. The physical and psychosocial benefits of regular physical activity (PA) during and after cancer treatment are well established. However, less than 30% of individuals with cancer meet current PA recommendations and PA levels decline significantly during treatment. PA services within the cancer institution to support well-being during treatment are not available for survivors across Ontario. Strategies are needed within cancer centres to close the gap between the evidence and clinical practice. What is the purpose? To evaluate the effectiveness of a novel exercise and education strategy for individuals with cancer during treatment. What are we proposing to do? This project includes two parts. In Part 1 participants will be put into one of three groups. Group 1 (Exercise & self-management) will include eight sessions of supervised, institution-based exercise and self-management education. Group 2 (self-management only) will include eight virtual self-management education sessions with an exercise professional. Group 3 will receive usual care (i.e., no intervention). In Part 2 participants who attended less than 75% of their sessions will be asked to complete an interview on the barriers to continuing with the study during cancer treatment. Why is this work important? Findings from this trial will inform the way PA services are provided within cancer institutions across Ontario. This novel strategy incorporates both institution-based and home-based exercise strategies during treatment and highlights the importance of individuals with cancer taking an active role in managing their condition during treatment. This can prevent future complications and decrease burden on the individual and the healthcare system. Results will inform future decisions on PA implementation strategies for cancer survivors with diverse needs across Ontario.

NCT ID: NCT06323473 Not yet recruiting - Cancer Clinical Trials

Maitake for Integrative Cancer Care

Start date: July 1, 2024
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

Maitake is an edible mushroom that is used for both its nutritional and medicinal properties. Human and animal studies have shown Maitake may help improve immune function; however, its effectiveness in people with cancer is not clear. The investigators aim to measure if Maitake has any immunomodulatory effects when given alongside conventional systemic cancer therapy.
