The purpose of the proposed research study is to evaluate whether bone marrow transplant patients prefer the Stanford letter advance care planning tool to the standard Advance directive. Completion of advance care planning prior to BMT is very important, but not often done. The investigators believe that the Stanford Letter will be preferred by patients and will allow them to feel more comfortable and share more of their wishes with family members and the medical team.
Advance directives are again in the heart of debate since the Leonetti-Claeys's law .

Enteral nutrition in preterm infants is usually started and advanced slowly until reaching full enteral feeds. Most preterm infants born before 34 weeks gestation require parenteral fluids to maintain normal blood sugar level and prevent excessive weight loss and dehydration. Availability of donor human milk (DHM) along with low incidence of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) in preterm infants born at 30-33 weeks have encouraged neonatologists to start feeding early and advance i...
This study was designed to validate the "San Francisco Syncope Rule". This set of rules was derived by Quinn et. al. to help guide the treatment of patients evaluated in the Emergency Department who had an episode of syncope (passed out) or near syncope (almost passed out). A rule that considers patients with an abnormal ECG, a complaint of shortness of breath, hematocrit less than 30%, systolic blood pressure less than 90 mm Hg, or a history of congestive heart failure was sh...
Using a cluster randomized design at the clinic level, this project will implement and test three real-world, scalable advance care planning interventions among primary care clinics across three University of California health systems. Seriously ill patients identified using data from the electronic health record will receive (1) an advance directive with targeted messaging, (2) intervention 1 plus prompting to engage with the Prepare For Your Care website, or (3) intervention ...

To study the epidemiology of emergency asthma by focusing on three Multicenter Asthma Research Collaboration (MARC) databases collected over a two-year period in adult and pediatric emergency departments.
Sometimes people with health conditions become ill suddenly and can no longer speak for themselves and another person (such as a family member) will make health care decisions for them. This means it is important to think about your wishes and tell others about them. This is called advance care planning. When people have done advance care planning, if they become very sick and cannot speak for themselves they are more likely to get the kind of health care they want and it is ea...
The Stay Study is a multi-site, open-label HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) demonstration project for advancing PrEP delivery in the San Francisco Bay Area Transgender Community. Approximately 188 HIV-uninfected participants will be enrolled at 4 sites in San Francisco and Fremont and will be provided Truvada to take orally once daily as PrEP.
The ability to communicate with patients is profoundly impacted by their health literacy - the ability to interpret documents, read and write prose, use quantitative information and speak and listen effectively. Limited health literacy is commonplace and associated with multiple poor health outcomes including frequent readmission's and high mortality. Advance directives are an important tool in respecting patient autonomy in health care interventions. Advance directives can als...
The purpose of this study is to compare the acceptability, usefulness, self-efficacy and comprehension of an easy-to-read advance directive form versus a standard advance directive form written at a post graduate reading level.
The Advance® 18 PTX® Balloon Catheter study is a clinical trial to study the safety and effectiveness of the Advance 18® PTX® Balloon Catheter in the treatment of lesions in the superficial femoral artery and popliteal artery.
This work aims to evaluate an approach for improving federal legislators' use of evidence—known as the Research-to-Policy Collaboration (RPC) - which seeks to address known barriers to policymakers' use of research, including a lack of personal contact between researchers and policymakers and limited relevance of research translation efforts to current policy priorities. The RPC involves structured processes for identifying policymakers' priorities, building researchers' capa...
The law about advance directives is evolving but, in France, few people write it. Te main endpoint of this research is to estimate the proportion of patients who have written their advance directives or considering doing so in onco-dermatologic population. If this rate remains low, some insights on the reasons will be able to be advanced looking at the point of view and opinion of patients about this topic. Seconds endpoints are : For patients against or not planning t...
Rates of advance directive completion among Americans, even those suffering from serious chronic illness, are notoriously poor. Moreover, the contents of completed advance directives are often difficult to interpret in the face of a medical crisis. The study aims to examine patient perceptions of electronic, interactive versions of advance care planning documentation.
CRiALS is an umbrella protocol through which people are recruited to participate in a range of research studies being conducted by the ALS Research Collaboration (ARC).
Advance care planning among patients with cognitive disorders poses unique challenges to clinicians. To improve planning in patients with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, the researchers suggest a routine, standardized approach to these conversations. The main outcome measure is the rate of entry of Advance Directive completion in the patient's Electronic Health Record (EHR). A control group of similar patients from another provider specializing in cognitive disorders w...
In this research study, the investigators are working to help oncologists better serve patients by delivering more patient-centered, goal-concordant care that may improve health care delivery. - It is expected that about 4,500 people will take part in this research study.

The modified-Exclusive Enteral Nutrition (mEEN) is an open label randomized controlled pilot trial in mild to severe Crohn's Disease patients. The purpose of this study is to determine whether induction of remission and maintenance of remission can be achieved with a new dietary strategy that involves only 2 weeks of Exclusive Enteral Nutrition (EEN) with Modulen and 12 weeks of an exclusion diet involving selected table foods. This novel approach will be compared to the gold s...
Through close engagement with our patient and family member co-investigators, we have developed a video-based advance care planning aid for cancer patients and their family members who are preparing for major surgery. In this study, patients are randomized to see either the intervention video (involving advance care planning-related content) or a control video (no advance care planning-related content) prior to surgery. We hypothesize that the video will lead to more and bette...
This is a prospective observational study that will follow patients who undergo lung cancer screening at the San Francisco VA Medical Center, UCSF Medical Center, and the San Francisco General Hospital. The proposed study will comprise of two primary populations to determine the ctDNA assay performance in a variety of clinical settings.
Exclusive breastfeeding is promoted by the World Health Organization (WHO) with the aim of improving infant health. The specific objective of the study was to examine the effect of exclusive breast-feeding on morbidity and mortality in a randomised prospective study. Children born by mothers recorded as living in the study area during pregnancy was randomised at birth. WHO recommendations to postpone introduction of water and weaning food were told to the mother by 2-weekly hom...
This study compares the effectiveness of two different approaches to advance care planning among older African Americans and older Whites living in the community. The two approaches are a structured approach with an advance care planning conversation led by a trained person using Respecting Choices (First Steps) and a patient-driven approach which includes a Five Wishes advance care planning form written in plain language. The study will determine which approach is more effecti...
