NCT ID: NCT05484843 Completed - Stroke Clinical Trials

The Effect of Health Promotion Training on Life Qualities and Self-Care Powers in Stroke Patients

Start date: April 10, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

There are many methods that nurses use while providing care education to individuals. Tele-nursing, which is one of the current methods, is an innovative approach, but it is a useful method in meeting the post-discharge home care needs of patients who are dependent or partially dependent on others and who live in areas far from health care institutions. In today's health care delivery system, it is of great importance to develop a tele-nursing-based care approach by making effective infrastructure studies related to tele-nursing services. Although a limited number of studies have been conducted on different patient groups regarding the tele-nursing method in Turkey, no study has been found that determines the effect of tele-nursing education on patients' quality of life and self-care power in stroke patients. In this respect, it is thought that it is important to conduct studies that will examine the effects of tele-nursing on patients who need long-term care such as stroke at the national level. The aim of this study is to find out the effects of telenursing training based on self-care theory which was given to patients diagnosed with stroke on quality of life and self-care agency.

Application of Telehealth Technology in Asthma Management

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

Background: While effective treatments are available, asthma control is sub-optimal for many asthma patients. To help patients self-manage their asthma symptoms, provision of an asthma action plan (AAP) in written format (wAAP), with instructions on managing worsening asthma symptoms is recommended, as a standard of care; however, only about half of patients correctly adhere to their AAP. Canadian Asthma Text Messaging Study (CANATEXTS) is a Telehealth (TH) intervention facilitating access to an electronic AAP (eAAP) via a mobile device. In a feasibility study to assess the safety and efficacy of CANATEXTS, an 18% reduction in the relative risk of exacerbation was observed among the intervention group compared to control group. This study will assess the effectiveness of CANATEXTS on asthma outcomes in a Canada-wide study. Methods: This is a superiority a 2-arm, multi-site randomized control trial (RCT). This study aims to determine if CANATEXTS reduces asthma exacerbation over a 12-month period, improves asthma control, quality of life (QoL) and medication adherence, and is cost-effective. The intervention includes access to an electronic asthma action plan (eAAP) on patients' mobile devices, disease-related education, and weekly reminders via a Short messaging system (SMS) interface. The study will include 620 adult participants with asthma recruited from 14 respiratory clinics across Canada. Participants will be randomly assigned to either Intervention group (eAAP) or Control groups (wAAP). All outcomes of interest will be assessed during three in-person assessments (baseline, 6-month, and 12-month) and two telephone follow-ups (3-month and 9-month). Data will be analyzed with a linear mixed-effects model across all time points. Discussion: TH has the potential to improve adult individuals with asthma's engagement in self-management practices. Our feasibility study showed TH could yield a reduction in asthma exacerbation. If the proposed TH intervention is found to be effective for asthma management in a nation-wide trial, it will generate evidence to support integration of TH in asthma self-management. This study will also provide important information on the cost-effectiveness of CANATEXTS when compared to standard asthma care.

The Effect of E-Mobile and Written Education

Start date: March 10, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Bening's Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH), which is closely related to aging, is one of the most common diseases in the world. Although it is not a life-threatening condition, lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) are seen in many patients, which disrupts their daily activities, sleep patterns, and quality of life of the patients. Examination of changes in sleep and quality of life after transurethral resection of the prostate (TUR-P) in patients with LUTS due to BPH and planning training according to their needs will positively affect the lives of these patients. It is very important for nurses to provide individual training and counseling by making use of innovative technology to ensure that patients manage the surgical process in a healthy way and cope with possible complications. This thesis study was planned as a three-group randomized controlled experimental study in order to determine the effect of e-mobile training and counseling on quality of life and sleep in patients who underwent TUR-P to manage the operative process and cope with possible complications.

Investigating the Equivalence of the EORTC QLQ-C30 and the QLQ-F17

Start date: August 1, 2022
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

The EORTC QLQ-C30, a patient-reported outcome measure (PROM) that is available in 110 different languages, has been used in thousands of clinical cancer trials worldwide. The QLQ-C30 is composed of six functioning scales (including a measure for global quality of life), three symptom scales, and six single items. Researchers and regulatory bodies came up with the idea to construct a shortened EORTC questionnaire that solely consists of functioning scales and to use additional symptom items according to the side effect profile of the specific medication under investigation. This shortened form termed QLQ-F17 includes the Physical Functioning (PF), Role Functioning (RF), Emotional Functioning (EF), Cognitive Functioning (CF), and Social Functioning (SF) scales as well as the Global Health Status/Quality of Life (QL) scale in their original wording. This functioning questionnaire can be amended with symptom-specific items taken from the EORTC item library. This method provides a flexible and economic testing strategy that fits the demands of regulators and users in industry and academia. It is an open question, however, whether the QLQ-F17 is equivalent to the QLQ-C30 in terms of measurement properties. Based on empirical research on response biases and order effects, one might argue that elimination of the symptoms between RF and CF-Dyspnea (DY), Pain (PA), Fatigue (FA), Insomnia (SL), Appetite (AP), Nausea/Vomiting (NV), Constipation (CO), and Diarrhea (DI)-and of the Financial difficulties (FI) item between SF and QL may alter the manner in which subsequent items are completed. Thus, from a methodological point of view, it is essential to confirm the psychometric properties of the QLQ-F17 and to present evidence that scale values derived from the QLQ-F17 are equivalent to those of the QLQ-C30. Only in the case of equivalence may studies using either of the two basic questionnaires be compared directly. The present project is designed to address this research question. This is an international multicenter survey study that will include respondents with cancer from Australia, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden, and United Kingdom. A randomized cross-over design will be applied, enabling between-patients as well as within-patients comparisons of the QLQ-C30 and the QLQ-F17. One group of respondents will first fill in the QLQ-C30 followed by the QLQ-F17, the other group will start with the QLQ-F17 followed by the QLQ-C30. A sample size of 1.500 cancer patients is sufficient to get precise estimates with narrow confidence intervals regarding item and scale-level agreement. Thresholds and margins to be used for the analyses in this study will be consented by a statistical advisory group. Reliability and psychometric properties can also be precisely estimated with a sample of this size. The present study is based on the hypothesis that the QLQ-F17 and the QLQ-C30 questionnaires are equivalent.

My Journey: A Brief Contextual Behavioural Intervention Based on Strengths, Meaning, Hope and Connection

Start date: August 15, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The present study will explore the underlying mechanisms of problematic Internet and smartphone use by focusing on how and when environmental factors affect the positive psychological intervention factors. Hence, the present study will provide scientific empirical evidence to design and formulate follow-up intervention strategies. Aims: I. Apply the dynamic system model of addictive behavior execution in Chinese adolescents with problematic Internet and smartphone use and use longitudinal data to track and explore the underlying mechanisms of environmental factors and personal factors on problematic Internet and smartphone use. II. Identify positive psychological intervention factors that effectively prevent and reduce problematic Internet and smartphone use according to the interview and provide empirical evidence for other intervention designs. III. Conducting a positive psychological intervention in an adolescent population to verify the protective effect of positive psychology factors on problematic Internet and smartphone use. Hypotheses: I. Environmental factors (e.g., child abuse and trauma, parenting behaviors, teachers' encouragement, peer support) will affect the problematic Internet and smartphone use through personal characteristics (e.g., meaning in life); II. The effect of environmental factors on problematic Internet and smartphone use through personal characteristics will be moderated by other positive psychological intervention factors (e.g., character strengths); III. Positive psychological intervention (e.g., meaning-based intervention, strengths-based intervention) is an effective intervention strategy to prevent and reduce problematic Internet and smartphone use.

NCT ID: NCT05478941 Recruiting - Depression Clinical Trials

Can Virtual Reality Improve the Progressive Muscular Relaxation Technique Efficacy?

Start date: February 8, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The purposes of the current research project are as follows: 1. investigate if the PMRT associated with a personalized-relaxing scenario in VR can facilitate the recalling of the relaxing image in the real world than the standard procedure (consisting of PMRT associated with the in-imagination exposure to a comfortable subjective context). The investigators assume that VR would be more efficient than in-imagination since it would make easy the visualization process favor people cope with more realistic sensory experiences than in-imagination exposure. Accordingly, the VR exposure would elicit the strongest association between the relaxation procedure (neutral stimulus, NS) and the relaxing context in VR (conditioning stimulus, CS); 2. whether exposure to a personalized VREs has a more significant impact on anxiety, depression, stress, sense of presence, and quality of psychological well-being; these constructs are investigated by comparing the participants' performance on self-report questionnaires (described in the next section), before the start of the training (T0; baseline), at the end of all the four relaxing sessions, one week after the end of relaxation sessions (T1; day 7), and during follow up (T2; day 14); 3. if the relaxing sessions administered via Zoom are more proper for managing anxiety and stress than a procedure learned via an audio registration. Considering the ability to generate vivid visual images is positively associated with the capacity to feel present in a virtual world, all the participants are asked to fulfill two questionnaires before the VR or the Guided Imagery exposure to investigate the vividness and the capacity to control mental images respectively, and to control the impact of these two dependent variables on the sense of presence self-reported after the in imagination or VR exposure.
