Refinement of the Patient-Reported Outcomes Version of the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (PRO-CTCAE) Via Cognitive Interviewing and Usability Testing

Background: - Currently, National Cancer Institute treatment trials use clinical staff reporting to monitor adverse side effects. The clinical staff reports draw on items from the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE). - Several of the items in the CTCAE can be adapted for use in patient self-reporting of side effects. Researchers are interested in developing a patient-reported outcome (PRO) approach to the CTCAE. Object...

The purpose of this study is to improve cancer care and the delivery of cancer care. Researchers are interested in studying patient reported information and examining how different factors may impact cancer care.

Identification of Critical Outcomes in Sarcopenia

Patients will be recruited on each site according to inclusion criteria. Participants willing to participate will received an information sheet and a consent form. After given their consent to participate, they will receive a questionnaire composed of 13 choice questions. In this DCE, patients will be asked to choose which one of two hypothetical patients (Patient A and Patient B) suffering from sarcopenia with different levels of outcomes deserves the most the treatment. After...

Web-based Patient Reported Outcome Measurement Information System (PROMIS ) to Explore Burden and Stress in Cancer Caregivers (BaSiC2)

Background: - Caring for a loved one is often stressful. Some studies show it may affect health and emotions. Researchers want to know more about this but do not know the best way to gather data. They want to know if an online survey is a good way to gather data from caregivers of people receiving cancer treatment at the NIH Clinical Center. They want to know if there are differences among caregivers depending on the type of cancer treatment the family member or friend i...

Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) Quality of Life Survey Pilot Project 2

The purpose of this study is to explore the patient perspective of disease burden in Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI). Participants will complete a web-based survey of questions which are usually administered within the Patient-Reported Outcome Measurement Information System (PROMIS) and provide feedback regarding the appropriateness of the questions for someone with OI.
