Supportive Care for Patients With Hematological Malignancies Undergoing Hematopoietic Cell Transplant
This pilot clinical trial studies supportive care for patients with hematological malignancies undergoing hematopoietic cell transplant. Supportive care may improve quality of life in this patient population.
Other: palliative care
Other: questionnaire administration
Procedure: quality-of-life assessment
|Study Design:||Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
|Official Title:||FEASIBILITY OF IMPLEMENTING PRE-TRANSPLANT EVALUATION BY THE SUPPORTIVE CARE TEAM FOR PATIENTS UNDERGOING HEMATOPOIETIC CELL TRANSPLANTATION FOR HEMATOLOGICAL MALIGNANCIES|
- Study participation rates defined as the proportion of patients who consent to enroll [ Time Frame: Up to 5 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Will mainly be descriptive.
- Completion time for the supportive care consultation [ Time Frame: Up to 90 days post-treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Will mainly be descriptive.
- Level of comfort / distress attributed to individual parts of the consultation [ Time Frame: Up to 90 days post-treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Will mainly be descriptive. The post-consultation scores measuring level of comfort or distress per topic in the supportive care consultation will be summarized per item.
- Completeness of follow-up data collection, where completeness is defined by the proportion of instrument scores that can be calculated per given time point [ Time Frame: Up to 90 days post-treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Will mainly be descriptive. The completeness of follow-up data collection will be calculated and reported as a proportion of successfully completed scales vs. scales attempted to be collected or completed by patients.
|Study Start Date:||April 2013|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||March 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: Supportive care (palliative care support)
Patients undergo palliative care support before transplantation and at least once monthly while they remain at the transplant center.

I. Pilot a supportive care intervention that begins prior to transplantation and continues through the acute peritransplant period.
II. Determine the proportion of patients who enroll and the level of comfort / distress of hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) patients who meet with the supportive care team.
III. Pilot data collection mechanisms and cost retrieval in preparation for a randomized clinical trial.
Patients undergo supportive care consultation before transplantation and at least once monthly while they remain at the transplant center.
