Expectations Regarding Mobility and Self-Care

2016-09-22 21:08:21 | BioPortfolio


The goal of this research study is to learn if there is a difference between participant's expectations of how well they will perform daily living activities after short-term inpatient rehabilitation and the doctor's expectations of how well participant will perform daily living activities.


If participant agrees to take part in this study, they will complete questionnaires before their inpatient rehabilitation and after they complete inpatient rehabilitation. The questionnaires will ask about how well participant currently performs daily living activities, their expectation of how well they will perform daily living activities after they complete inpatient rehabilitation, their symptoms in the past 24 hours, and their physical, functional, social, and emotional well-being. These questionnaires should take about 15 minutes total to complete.

Information from participant's medical record (such as your age, gender, religion, cancer diagnosis, stage of cancer, and so on) will be collected.

Length of Study:

Participation on this study will be over after participant completes the questionnaires.

This is an investigational study.

Up to 111 participants will take part in this study. All will be enrolled at MD Anderson.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

New abnormal growth of tissue. Malignant neoplasms show a greater degree of anaplasia and have the properties of invasion and metastasis, compared to benign neoplasms.

Benign and malignant neoplasms which occur within the substance of the spinal cord (intramedullary neoplasms) or in the space between the dura and spinal cord (intradural extramedullary neoplasms). The majority of intramedullary spinal tumors are primary CNS neoplasms including ASTROCYTOMA; EPENDYMOMA; and LIPOMA. Intramedullary neoplasms are often associated with SYRINGOMYELIA. The most frequent histologic types of intradural-extramedullary tumors are MENINGIOMA and NEUROFIBROMA.

Benign and malignant neoplasms that arise from one or more of the twelve cranial nerves.

Tumors or cancer of ENDOMETRIUM, the mucous lining of the UTERUS. These neoplasms can be benign or malignant. Their classification and grading are based on the various cell types and the percent of undifferentiated cells.

Benign and malignant neoplasms that arise from the optic nerve or its sheath. OPTIC NERVE GLIOMA is the most common histologic type. Optic nerve neoplasms tend to cause unilateral visual loss and an afferent pupillary defect and may spread via neural pathways to the brain.
