The purpose of this study is to evaluate the importance of providing guidelines to patients via active telephone calls in blood pressure control and in the discontinuation of treatment among hypertensive patients. Hypertensives (N = 354) who could receive telephone calls to be reminded of the dates of their medical appointments and to be instructed about hypertension were distributed into two groups: a) "uncomplicated" - hypertensives with no other concurrent diseases; and b) "...
The goal of this project is to quantify the impact of post-hospital discharge follow-up phone calls on hospital readmission, ED visits, patient satisfaction, and mortality in a general medicine inpatient population. We will obtain exploratory information on patient sub-groups at high risk for hospital readmission and on those experiencing high benefit from the follow-up phone call intervention. In addition, we will obtain data on discharge plan implementation assistance needed ...
The study is a randomized clinical trial, controlled, open label that aimed to compare two groups after discharge of a tertiary care: type 2 diabetes patients followed exclusively by primary care (control group) and patients followed by primary care and supported by phone calls (intervention group).
The goal of this study is to evaluate the effect of three weight management interventions (group phone conference calls, individual phone calls, and enhanced usual care) on weight across 18 months in overweight and obese adults recruited through and treated by rural primary care clinics.
This study seeks to determine if postoperative phone calls by a physician affect outcomes in hand surgery.
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if ibrutinib can help to control mantle cell lymphoma (MCL). The safety of this drug will also be studied.
Stroke is a leading cause of death and functional impairments and stroke risk factors (SRFs) disproportionately affect Latino populations. In the Hispanic Secondary Stroke Prevention Initiative (HISSPI) the investigators propose a study using Community Health Workers (CHW) and mobile technologies using cell phones to reduce the risk for a recurrent stroke among Latino stroke patients. The project examines the effectiveness of a combined multilevel intervention consisting of ...
Venipuncture is one of the painful procedures most frequently performed in children. Pain and distress management in children, during needle related procedures, is warranted. The base for pain management starts with behavioural and environmental support and distraction. Distraction is a cognitive strategy trying to divert the child's attention from a noxious stimulus. Active distraction involves the child in a different performance, e.g. playing, during pain procedures. Passiv...
To compare the effectiveness of reducing discomfort during flexible nasal endoscopy using simple distraction techniques compared to topical anaesthetic spray and a control group that does not receive topical anaesthetic spray or a distraction technique.
This goal of this research is to examine the efficacy and feasibility of starting a phone call follow-up program for individuals discharged to the community after presenting to the Crisis Response Centre (CRC), a standalone mental health facility in Winnipeg, with suicidal ideation or behaviours. Currently there is no worldwide gold standard for how best to follow-up with individuals following presentations to health services with suicidal ideation or behaviours, despite the pe...
Patients will be randomly assigned to either one of two groups: 1. Standard of care sedation 2. Audiovisual distraction during surgery and in the recovery room using video goggles and headphones; patients can choose a movie from a preexisting library Monitoring and anesthesia regimen will be standardized
Audio-Visual (AV) Distraction is a recent modality introduced to the entertaining market technology for adults and children. Some practitioners started using this modality of distraction in the dental practice to aid in psychological management of patients. This study is designed to compare between conventional dental visits (No Distraction) and dental visits aided with audio-visual distraction. Providing a safe, comfortable and entertaining dental environment will give pediat...
This phase II study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Ferinject® in reducing perioperative transfusion in iron deficiency anemia patients anticipating pancreatoduodenectomy.
The purpose is to conduct a randomized, single-masked crossover study to determine if acute consumption of a commercially available, highly palatable dark chocolate bar can improve visual performance. Vision testing will include multiple measures of contrast and color perception, reaction time, effects of distraction on visual performance during simulated hands-free phone calls, simulated marksmanship, as well as multiple, objective electro-diagnostic tests including standard a...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the feasibility and potential impact of an automated phone system in monitoring and improving self-care and health outcomes among patients with depression in Bolivia.
Project Overview: Poor hypertension control has dire consequences for the African-American population who suffer greater death and disability from heart disease, stroke, and renal failure than whites. To reduce these health disparities it is critical to promote of a healthy lifestyle in regard to diet, exercise, adherence to medications, as well as other behaviors. However, physicians usually fail to address lifestyle behaviors in the context of the harried patient vis...
A clinical study to evaluate the use of cell phones to support drug adherence and follow-up of patients taking antiretroviral therapy (ART) for treatment of HIV. The intervention involves health-care providers sending regular short-message-service (SMS) text messages to patients and following up their responses. The hypothesis is that the cell phone intervention will improve ART adherence and health outcomes compared with the current standard of care.
This randomized control study (sponsored by the NIH, NIDDK) is aimed at reducing BMI in overweight adolescents at risk for the development of type 2 diabetes. The study will examine whether an integrated primary care, web and cell-phone-based intervention can produce initial and sustained improvements in anthropometric, behavioral, metabolic, and physiological outcomes in overweight adolescents. The primary goal is to reduce BMI (Body Mass Index)in overweight adolescents.
This study aims to assess the effectiveness of a stepwise approach, with increasing complexity and cost, to improve adherence to organized cervical cancer screening: step 1a - customized text message invitation; step 1b - customized automatic phone call invitation; step 2 - secretary phone call; step 3 - health professionals face-to-face appointment. A population-based randomized controlled trial will be implemented in Portuguese urban and rural areas. Women eligible for cervi...
This is a NCI funded study which will develop and evaluate a cell phone application (mDIET) that can be used as an assessment and intervention tool to improve dietary behaviors and thus reduce weight in overweight and moderately obese (BMI 25-34.9) men and women ages 25-55.
The purpose of this study is to compare two different weight management delivery methods, social media versus a traditional care model.
