Summary

RATIONALE: Studying quality-of-life in patients having cancer treatment may identify the intermediate- and long-term effects of treatment on patients with cancer

PURPOSE: This randomized clinical trial is studying how well an educational intervention works in supporting Hispanic women with stage I, stage II, or stage III breast cancer and their families or caregivers.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

I. Test the effects of the Bilingual Breast Cancer Education Intervention (BBCEI) on outcomes of breast cancer survivors (BCS) and family caregivers at 1, 3, and 6 months post intervention.

II. Test the effect of influencing demographic and treatment variables on outcomes of the BBCEI at 1, 3, and 6 months post intervention.

III. Examine the perceived quality of the BBCEI.

OUTLINE: Patients and caregivers are randomized to 1 of 2 intervention arms.

ARM I: Patients and caregivers undergo the Bilingual Breast Cancer Educational Intervention (BBCEI) comprising teaching sessions over 50-65 minutes about 4 specific domains (i.e., physical, psychological, social, and spiritual well being) once weekly during month 1 and also undergo evaluation sessions at months 1, 4, and 7.

ARM II: Patients and caregivers undergo usual care comprising evaluation sessions at months 1, 4, and 7. Patients and caregivers may undergo the 4 BBCEI teaching sessions during month 7.

All patients and caregivers receive reinforcement telephone calls every other week.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A measurement index derived from a modification of standard life-table procedures and designed to take account of the quality as well as the duration of survival. This index can be used in assessing the outcome of health care procedures or services. (BIOETHICS Thesaurus, 1994)

Activities and programs intended to assure or improve the quality of care in either a defined medical setting or a program. The concept includes the assessment or evaluation of the quality of care; identification of problems or shortcomings in the delivery of care; designing activities to overcome these deficiencies; and follow-up monitoring to ensure effectiveness of corrective steps.

A generic concept reflecting concern with the modification and enhancement of life attributes, e.g., physical, political, moral and social environment; the overall condition of a human life.

A quality-of-life scale developed in the United States in 1972 as a measure of health status or dysfunction generated by a disease. It is a behaviorally based questionnaire for patients and addresses activities such as sleep and rest, mobility, recreation, home management, emotional behavior, social interaction, and the like. It measures the patient's perceived health status and is sensitive enough to detect changes or differences in health status occurring over time or between groups. (From Medical Care, vol.xix, no.8, August 1981, p.787-805)

Self report questionnaire which yields 16 scores on personality traits, such as reserved vs. outgoing, humble vs. assertive, etc.
