Patient-Centered Risk Adjusted Surveillance After Curative Resection of Colorectal Cancer

2015-03-12 02:38:22 | BioPortfolio


The long-term goal of this research is to develop new tools to guide patients, caregivers, and clinicians in making individualized decisions regarding colorectal cancer (CRC) surveillance. As part of a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute-funded contract, principal investigator will analyze surveillance data to determine the effectiveness of CRC surveillance and recurrence risk taking into account different patient and tumor characteristics; identify key issues about CRC surveillance important to patients, caregivers, and clinicians; and integrate the recurrence risk and patient priorities into a patient-centered, risk stratified surveillance strategy by creating an interactive decision aid for use by patients and clinicians.

The specific aims of the study are:

Aim 1 - Determine the effectiveness of surveillance of colorectal cancer patients following curative resection and the factors associated with recurrence treatment eligibility.

Aim 2 - Identify key priorities for surveillance that are important to patients and clinicians through stakeholder engagement.

Aim 3 - Develop a patient-centered risk-stratified surveillance strategy utilizing a novel, interactive, decision aid to facilitate shared decision making.

This protocol addresses a formative step in the creation of the interactive decision aid where patients' information needs and preferences are assessed regarding decisions about surveillance.

The specific aims of this protocol are:

Phase 1 - To interview patients and their caregivers to determine their concerns, preferences and key priorities regarding surveillance after curative resection of colorectal cancer, and

Phase 2 - To refine the key priorities identified in phase 1 through focus groups and surveys with patients and caregivers.


Up to 180 patients and their caregivers will participate.

Tumor suppressor genes located in the 18q21-qter region of human chromosome 18. The absence of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (DCC stands for deleted in colorectal cancer). The products of these genes show significant homology to neural cell adhesion molecules and other related cell surface glycoproteins.
