|Brief Title ICMJE||Printed Education Materials in Patients Who Are Finishing Treatment for Stage I, Stage II, or Stage IIIA Breast Cancer, Colorectal Cancer, Prostate Cancer, or Chest Cancer|
|Official Title ICMJE||Efficacy and Feasibility of a Psychosocial Intervention Within the CCOP Context: Evaluation of the Facing Forward Guide to Facilitate Life After Active Cancer Treatment|
RATIONALE: Printed educational materials, such as the Facing Forward Series: Life After Cancer Treatment manual, may help make the transition from cancer patient to cancer survivor easier in patients who are finishing treatment for cancer. It is not yet known if the Facing Forward Series: Life After Cancer Treatment manual and The Cancer Information Service, Questions and Answers fact sheet is more effective than the The Cancer Information Service, Questions and Answers fact sheet alone in helping to make life after cancer treatment easier and to improve quality of life in patients with breast cancer, colorectal cancer, prostate cancer, or chest cancer.
PURPOSE: This randomized clinical trial is studying how well printed education materials work in assisting patients who are finishing treatment for stage I, stage II, or stage IIIA breast cancer, colorectal cancer, prostate cancer, or chest cancer to make the transition from cancer patient to cancer survivor easier.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter, randomized, controlled, open-label, cohort study. Patients are stratified according to participating center, prior chemotherapy (yes vs no), and type of cancer (breast vs colorectal vs prostate vs thoracic). Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 arms.
In both arms, patients are evaluated at baseline (within 18 days of the patient's final cancer treatment visit), 8 weeks (via mailed home materials), and then at 6 months (via mailed home materials). Baseline evaluations include background information (i.e., demographics and medical status), baseline use of educational materials, survivorship activities, and psychological factors (i.e., depressive symptoms, quality of life, fear of recurrence, and self-efficacy). Psychological factors are also reassessed at 8 weeks and 6 months, as well as use of educational materials and survivorship activities.
For patients in both arms, uptake of recommended actions are reassessed. Patients in arm I complete ratings of the Facing Forward Series: Life After Cancer Treatment manual usability, comprehension, and satisfaction at 8 weeks and 6 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 332 patients will be accrued for this study.
