Patient, Physician, and Nurse Factors Associated With Entry Onto Clinical Trials and Finishing Treatment in Patients With Primary or Recurrent Uterine, Endometrial, or Cervical Cancer

2014-07-23 21:09:38 | BioPortfolio


RATIONALE: Determining how patients make decisions about participating in a clinical trial may help doctors plan clinical trials in which more patients are willing to participate and are satisfied with their decision to participate.

PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying patient, physician, and nurse factors associated with entry onto clinical trials and finishing treatment in patients with primary or recurrent uterine, endometrial, or cervical cancer.




- To determine if there are specific, modifiable factors relative to patients, physicians, nurses, or clinical trial designs that predict enrollment or non-enrollment onto a GOG therapeutic trial for patients with primary or recurrent invasive carcinoma of the uterine corpus or cervix.

- To determine if the Functional Comorbidity Index is an independent predictor of enrollment in a GOG clinical trial and if it correlates with performance status.


- To determine, through multivariate analyses, whether the distribution of patients into a GOG clinical trial entry status categories (i.e., enrolled, not enrolled but eligible, not eligible) varies by demographics or economic status of patients, by patients' beliefs/concerns and interactions with physicians/family and friends, or by nurses' or physicians' beliefs/concerns and interactions with patients.

- To determine whether patients' beliefs/concerns or interactions are associated with patient, nurse, or physician demographics.

- To determine whether physicians' beliefs/concerns or interactions are associated with patient or physician demographics.

- To perform descriptive analysis regarding factors associated with completion of treatment through analysis of the Treatment Review Form.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

At baseline, patients' medical record information is collected; sites complete the Functional Comorbidity Index; and physicians, nurses, and study coordinators complete the follow-up questionnaire. Patients may also complete the Patient Registration Survey and Patient Questionnaire at baseline. Staff complete the treatment review form after treatment or 7 months after study registration.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Review of the medical necessity of hospital or other health facility admissions, upon or within a short time following an admission, and periodic review of services provided during the course of treatment.

Formal programs for assessing drug prescription against some standard. Drug utilization review may consider clinical appropriateness, cost effectiveness, and, in some cases, outcomes. Review is usually retrospective, but some analysis may be done before drugs are dispensed (as in computer systems which advise physicians when prescriptions are entered). Drug utilization review is mandated for Medicaid programs beginning in 1993.

Organizations representing designated geographic areas which have contracts under the PRO program to review the medical necessity, appropriateness, quality, and cost-effectiveness of care received by Medicare beneficiaries. Peer Review Improvement Act, PL 97-248, 1982.

Self-administered health questionnaire developed to obtain details of the medical history as an adjunct to the medical interview. It consists of 195 questions divided into eighteen sections; the first twelve deal with somatic complaints and the last six with mood and feeling patterns. The Index is used also as a personality inventory or in epidemiologic studies.

An organized procedure carried out through committees to review admissions, duration of stay, professional services furnished, and to evaluate the medical necessity of those services and promote their most efficient use.
