The investigators will evaluate the DS tool compared to the federal government website. The investigators will also evaluate the feasibility of disseminating this tool. There are two primary aims to be completed i...

Improving Outcomes Among Medical/Surgical Inpatients With Alcohol Use Disorders

This project aims to help Veterans who are in the hospital and have untreated alcohol problems. First, the investigators will adapt a Decision Aid that explains alcohol-related treatment options and their risks and benefits. Then, the investigators will determine the effectiveness of an intervention called DO-MoST (for Drinking Options-Motivate, Shared Decisions, Telemonitor), whereby a Decision Coach helps Veterans make decisions about alcohol-related behaviors and treatments ...


Exploring Medical Decisions Using Functional MRI

Hospital physicians are increasingly facing budgetary constraints that might have an impact on individual medical decisions (i.e. diagnostic or therapeutic decisions). This might translate into role conflict and ambiguity. We explore the medical decision-makingprocess of physicians usingfunctional MRI. Twenty hospital physicians will be asked to make simulated medical decisions during fMRI acquisitions, with and without explicit budgetary constraints. We will compare the fMRI d...

Lung Cancer Informational Study (LCIS)

The purpose of this study is to evaluate a new program to help the patient and the caregiver make decisions about treatment for lung cancer. We need to know if a new information program is helpful to patients. The way that we will do this is by comparing it with the usual information program that we now provide. Patient are asked to make difficult decisions about their treatments. These decisions may include when to change treatments or when to stop treatment altogether. Most ...

The Role of Emotions and Regulatory Focus in Decision Making That Involves Risk Tradeoffs

Background: People with cancer often have to make complex decisions about their treatment. For some of these decisions, they have to weigh the benefits of a treatment against its side effects. They may have to think about its potential to increase the risk of another disease. One example is hormone replacement therapy. That reduces a woman s risk of getting colorectal cancer, but it raises her risk of getting breast cancer. Researchers want to learn more about how people...

Mixed Methods Study Web-based Life Support Decision Aid

Patients and families want to be involved in healthcare decisions [1]. When the decision-making process does not engage older patients and their families, the care provided does not match patient preferences or meet their needs [2]. Healthcare teams can collaborate to support patients and families facing difficult healthcare decisions, such as decisions about the use of technology used to keep a person alive when they are critically ill. Tools called patient decision aids are u...

FAmily CEntered (FACE) Advance Care Planning for Teens With Cancer

Advance Care Planning (ACP) prepares patients and their loved ones for future health care decisions, including end-of-life decisions. Yet, the needs of adolescent oncology patients for participation in ACP, despite its priority, is not well studied. Our goal is to test a model of ACP that anticipates these issues, fully empowers the family and adolescent, and keeps the key role of health care professionals central, building on our earlier work. We hypothesized FAmily CEntered ...

The Development and Piloting of 'Power Up': A Tool for Young People With Internalising/Emotional Disorders to Make Shared Decisions in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)

Patients should be able to have a say in their care and treatment, but how this should work for children and young people with mental health difficulties is unknown. For example, how and when do young people want to be involved in decision making, and what is important to them, their parents/guardians and healthcare professionals? This project will address these questions and will develop a tool known as 'Power Up' to help young people with mental health difficulties make decis...

Intervention to Improve Shared Decision Making Among Seniors With Dementia, Their Caregivers and Healthcare Providers

The increasing prevalence of Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia causes new challenges to ensure that healthcare decisions are informed by research evidence and reflect what is important for seniors and their caregivers. Primary care providers point to a need for more training on communication with families of seniors living with dementia, and on the non-pharmacological health options that are often recommended before use of medications.Therefore, the investigators ...

Chemotherapy Decisions and Outcomes in Older Women With Newly Diagnosed Breast Cancer

RATIONALE: Studying how older women make treatment decisions and how these decisions affect the outcome of treatment may help doctors plan more effective treatments and improve patient quality of life. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying how a patient's treatment preferences and decisions about chemotherapy affect the outcome of treatment in older women with newly diagnosed breast cancer.

Alzheimer's Family Research

This is a research study about how family members make research participation decisions for a relative with Alzheimer's or a related dementia. The purpose of this study is to learn more about how proxies (the family member who makes decisions for that relative), would think through decisions about whether to enroll their relative in studies for not-yet-approved medications for Alzheimer's Disease. The long-term goal of the study is to improve the way researchers inform families...

Evaluation of Image-Based Modelling on Clinical Decisions in Coarctation of the Aorta

To answer the research question: "Would image-based modelling result in different clinical decisions as compared to clinical practice guidelines?", we will conduct a randomized controlled experiment in which we will compare the hypothetical decisions made by interventional cardiologists who are presented with imaging parameters currently recommended by clinical practice guidelines vs. hypothetical decisions made by interventional cardiologists receiving an expanded list of para...

RCT of Advance Care Planning in Primary Care

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...

Personalized Information or Basic Information in Helping Patients Make Decisions About Participating in a Clinical Trial

RATIONALE: Providing information that is tailored to answer patients' questions about clinical trials may help patients with cancer decide to enroll in a clinical trial. It is not known whether providing personalized information is more effective than basic information in helping patients make decisions about clinical trials. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying personalized information to see how well it works compared with basic information in helping patient...

Changes in Adherence After Playing "My Life With CF" Game

Nonadherence to treatment regimes among patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) is well documented in the literature. Unfortunately, few interventions have been successful at improving adherence rates in this patient population. Within the pediatric population, specifically adolescents, attitude toward treatment directly effects adherence to treatment. Changing attitude includes making conscious decisions regarding adherence or non-adherence and should include an understanding of wh...

An Integrated Model of Primary Care in Mental Health

Managed care systems rely on primary care providers as gatekeepers to make sensible decisions regarding the use of expensive health care resources. While this model has some intuitive appeal in terms of its potential for decreasing health care costs, it may not be applicable in VA medical centers, where patients are often medically complex and socioeconomically vulnerable. Thus, other strategies to integrate generalist and specialist care are required.

Belgian Mitraclip Registry

The primary objective of the registry is to investigate and follow all patients treated with the MitraClip System in Belgium. This information is intended to contribute to decision making with regards to MitraClip therapy selection in patients with mitral regurgitation: (a) by establishing the clinical value of the MitraClip therapy in the continuum of care; and (b) by providing practical information that will allow physicians to make therapeutic decisions, assist hospitals to ...

SHARE-D: a Decision Tool to Help Patients Make Informed Lifestyle Choices

More information is needed about effective ways to help people begin to change their lifestyle behaviours, particularly physical activity and diet. The investigators propose to test a 'tool' that can be used to guide discussions between people and health professionals about their physical activity and diet habits, so that people may be supported better in making decisions about why and how they might begin to fit more exercise and healthy food into their daily routines and make...

Making Decisions About Participating in a Cancer Clinical Trial for Patients With Stage II, Stage III, or Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer or Stage III or Stage IV Colon Cancer or Rectal Cancer

RATIONALE: Determining how patients makes decisions about participating in a clinical trial may help doctors plan clinical trials in which more patients are willing to participate and are satisfied with their decision to participate. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying how patients with stage II, stage III, or stage IV pancreatic cancer or stage III or stage IV colon cancer or rectal cancer make decisions about participating in a clinical trial.

Improving Antimicrobial-Prescribing in Emergency Departments

Antimicrobial resistance is one of today's most urgent public health problems. One of the most important strategies to slow the spread of antimicrobial resistance is the promotion of judicious antimicrobial use. There are tremendous opportunities to reduce unnecessary antimicrobial-prescribing, particularly in Emergency Departments (EDs). Our study will work collaboratively with ED providers in the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) to reduce unnecessary antimicrobial use. We...

Focus Groups to Determine Surrogates Views Regarding Patient Preference Predictors

Background: Some people cannot make medical treatment decisions on their own. The people who make decisions on their behalf are called medical surrogates. Sometimes surrogates cannot predict which treatment course the person or their loved ones would have chosen. The surrogates often become distressed because of making these decisions. Researchers think a tool called a Patient Preference Predictor (PPP) may be able to make the process easier. The PPP would predict what t...

Telemedicine in Cardiac Surgery: A Pilot Study

Telemedicine has been widely used in managing patients with neurologic disorders or mental illness. Telemedicine is defined as the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications for the health and education of the patient or healthcare provider and for the purpose of improving patient care. According to our knowledge, it has not been used to manage cardiac patients who need postoperative care after discharge from hospitals. T...
