NCT ID: NCT05441384 Recruiting - Cancer Clinical Trials

It's Time to Address Fear of Cancer Recurrence in Family Caregivers: Online Version of the Fear Of Recurrence Therapy

Start date: October 1, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Fear of cancer recurrence (FCR) is common, persistent, and is associated with negative outcomes. Studies show that family caregivers (FC) of cancer patients experience equal or greater levels of FCR than patients themselves. In the past 5 years, several interventions have demonstrated their ability to reduce FCR among cancer patients, including a group intervention called Fear of Recurrence Therapy (FORT). However, none have ever been adapted and offered to caregivers. The goals of the proposed study are to demonstrate 1) that a newly adapted intervention of FORT (FC-FORT) is feasible (i.e., participant recruitment, attendance and participation) and acceptable (i.e., FC satisfaction of the intervention) for a larger study, and 2) the clinical implications of FC- FORT on FCR and quality of life. An advisory board composed of researchers, therapists, and FC was created to adapt FORT for FC and to an online format. FC and therapists are currently being recruited to conduct a usability study of the newly adapted FC-FORT. They will be asked to complete a session feedback questionnaire after each session and to take part in an exit interview. The content of these will be summarized back to the advisory board in order to further refine FC-FORT. Following a successful usability study, FC-FORT will be given to four groups of nine new FC (pilot study). Participants will be recruited directly by clinicians and by outreach mailout efforts. They will complete a questionnaire package before and after the intervention, as well as at a three month follow up. The proposed study is needed to determine if an already developed FCR intervention can be adapted to family caregivers and if it can be successfully pilot tested. This will help bridge an important gap in bringing evidence-based care to caregivers who have never been offered help before for their FCR. The proposed project will also allow to further feasibility and acceptability of E-Health interventions.

Improving Communication for Cancer Treatment: Addressing Concerns of Older Cancer Patients and Caregivers

Start date: May 6, 2022
Study type: Observational

To improve patient-centered outcomes for older patients with cancer considering or receiving chemotherapy and their caregivers. To do this, the project team will (a) establish the effectiveness of GA on communication about age-related concerns, patient and caregiver satisfaction with communication about age-related concerns, quality of life, and patient-reported side effects of chemotherapy; (b) evaluate the success of the implementation strategies on the adoption, reach, and fidelity of implementing the GA in community oncology practices; and (c) identify the resources needed to implement GA and the GA-guided recommendations in community oncology practices for older patients considering or receiving chemotherapy.

NCT ID: NCT05430126 Recruiting - Cancer Clinical Trials

Hepatotoxicity Related to Protein Kinase Inhibitors

Start date: June 19, 2022
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

Although protein kinase inhibitors (PKIs) have proved effective in treating many cancers, few patients receiving PKIs may experience rare but life-threatening hepatotoxicity such as hepatic failure. Today, there is no large-scale retrospective pharmacovigilance study focusing on protein kinase inhibitors-related hepatotoxicity. The objective was to investigate reports of hepatotoxicity related to protein kinase inhibitors using FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS).

Prevention of Functional and Cognitive Impairment in Hospitalized Oncogeriatric Patients

Start date: December 1, 2020
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Hospitalized older patients usually remain bedridden for many hours and this may lead to the appearance of unwanted negative consequences, such as cognitive or physical decline upon discharge. Our study will analyze whether an intervention consisting of a multicomponent training programme applied to patients over the age of 60 who are hospitalized for acute medical conditions in an Oncology Department of a tertiary hospital improves functional capacity and cognitive function. A total of 50 hospitalized older adult patients will be recruited in the Hospital Universitario de Navarra, Pamplona, Spain. The participants will be randomized and included in an exercise intervention (n = 25) or a control (n = 25) group (hospital usual-care). The intervention consists of a multicomponent exercise training programme that will take place for 3 consecutive days (2 sessions/day). The control group will receive usual hospital care, which will include physical rehabilitation when needed. Functional and cognitive impairment after and during acute hospitalization in older adults are major determinants of the later need for health resources. If our hypothesis is correct and shows that a multicomponent, individualized and progressive exercise programme is an effective therapy for improving the functional capacity of acutely hospitalized older patients compared to usual care, a change in the current system of hospitalization may be justified in oncogeriatric patients with medical conditions

Maintenance Optimization of the Fully Implanted Venous Catheter

Start date: June 30, 2020
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Central venous catheter (CVC) are intravascular devices used in clinical practice, namely to administer fluid therapy, parenteral nutrition, drugs, blood products, hemodynamic monitoring, also being a gateway to the collection of blood samples or laboratory monitoring. The fully implanted central venous catheter (CVCTI) is a type of central venous access surgically placed, which is characterized by containing a subcutaneous reservoir that is accessed by puncturing the camera with a blunt needle, widely used in cancer patients. The fully implanted central venous catheter is recommended when there is a need for intermittent vascular access and of long duration. The maintenance of the CVCTI, as it's the necessity, frequency, and method is subject of some controversy, with discrepancies between the various cancer centers and guidance documents, once they occur several different intervals and maintenance methods. The objective of this study is to assess the necessity of frequent maintenance of fully implanted central venous catheter, still assuring its viability and holding the same or lower number incidence of complications. Participants in this study are cancer patients with a CVC fully implanted for chemotherapy, in follow-up phase. Participants will be randomized in one of two arms: Maintenance with saline solution and no maintenance.
