Tailored Interactive Intervention to Increase CRCS

2014-08-27 03:15:18 | BioPortfolio


The primary goal of this research project is to conduct a 5-year prospective randomized trial of a theory-based intervention to increase patient completion of colorectal cancer screening (CRCS) among patients ages 50 to 64 years old.


Specific Aim 1: Identify behavioral, social, and environmental factors associated with CRCS in male and female patients ages 50 to 64 years old in a primary care practice in Houston, Texas.

1.1. Update literature reviews of CRCS adherence. 1.2. Conduct secondary analysis of relevant data from other projects. 1.3. Conduct focus groups with primary care patients to determine their knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs about CRCS and to gather data to use for development of the educational intervention.

Specific Aim 2: Develop a personal computer (PC)-based tailored interactive intervention based on the transtheoretical (stages of change) model to increase CRCS in accordance with American Cancer Society (ACS) CRCS guidelines.

Specific Aim 3: Evaluate the effectiveness of the PC-based tailored interactive intervention for increasing CRCS through a randomized controlled trial.

Specific Aim 4: Analyze the relationship between a number of predictor variables and CRCS completion in order to develop a more complete conceptual framework for understanding screening adherence.

Specific Aim 5: Conduct a cost-effectiveness analysis of the PC-based tailored interactive intervention for increasing CRCS in a primary care setting.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.

Tumor suppressor genes located in the 5q21 region on the long arm of human chromosome 5. The mutation of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (MCC stands for mutated in colorectal cancer).

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.

A group of autosomal-dominant inherited diseases in which COLON CANCER arises in discrete adenomas. Unlike FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI with hundreds of polyps, hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms occur much later, in the fourth and fifth decades. HNPCC has been associated with germline mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes. It has been subdivided into Lynch syndrome I or site-specific colonic cancer, and LYNCH SYNDROME II which includes extracolonic cancer.

Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.
