  • Technologically Enhanced Coaching (TEC): A Program for Improving Diabetes Outcomes

    New

    PI: M. E. Michele Heisler, MD, MPA

    Peer mentoring and support models have been found in two recent VA RCTs to be more effective than usual care, financial incentives, and usual nurse care management to improve glycemic control in high-risk veteran patients with poor glycemic control. While peer supporters and coaches can be trained in effective behavioral approaches to support other veteransí self-management behaviors, such supporters necessarily lack content expertise to help veterans better share in treatment decisions and goal-setting with their health care providers. Accordingly, in an AHRQ-supported RCT we developed and tested tailored, interactive tools with diabetes and medication information embedded in the tool software that peer coaches and other outreach workers can employ to facilitate discussions with patients. Such tools could enhance the sustainability and effectiveness of coaching programs to better prepare patients to set self-management goals, action plans, and to discuss treatment options with their health care providers.

  • Building Your New Normal VA

    PI: Sarah T. Hawley, PhD, MPH

    The over-arching goal of the study is to determine whether an intervention using highly personalized automated telephone monitoring and self-management support calls paired with tailored print material can effectively improve Veteran-centered outcomes for prostate cancer survivors.

  • Measuring Chemotoxicity with IVR

    PI: Christopher R. Friese, PhD, RN, AOCN, FAAN

    This study examines the agreement between prospective and retrospective reporting of toxicities and health care service use (e.g., unscheduled office visit, emergency department visit, hospitalization) by patients with cancer treated with systemic chemotherapy. This information will provide the Cancer Center with rich patient outcomes data to inform quality improvement efforts. (09/01/2011 - 08/31/2012)

  • IVR Infrastructure

    PI: John D. Piette, PhD , Lawrence C. An, MD , Gary D. Hammer, MD, PhD

    This project creates the infrastructure to integrate scheduled interactive voice response (IVR) calls as well as other scheduled activities across CHCR projects. (07/01/2011 - 06/30/2014)

  • Building Your New Normal

    PI: Ted A. Skolarus, MD, MPH

    Building Your New Normal tests two novel approaches to improve the quality of post-treatment follow-up for prostate cancer survivors: 1) IVR (interactive voice response)-administered EPIC and 2) tailored versions of Michigan Cancer Consortium (MCC) guidelines for patients and their primary care providers (10/01/2010 - 09/30/2011)

  • Tailoring Technology Core (CECCR1 and CECCR2)

    PI: Edward W. Saunders, MS

    The primary purpose of the Tailoring Technology Core (TTC) is to design, develop, pretest, and implement the tailored intervention systems required for all CECCR Research and Developmental Projects. Consolidating these task into a central core offers several advantages. First, the TTC organizes resources for more cost-effective production of tailored interventions for each of the Projects. TTC programmers use a common robust tailoring system for all Projects. Instead of building each Projectís interventions individually, from the ground up, TTC builds each one from an existing foundation that has been refined over several years, and then adds the appropriate assessments and content, modifies tailoring algorithms, and applies any special features.Second, the multidisciplinary organization of personnel within the TTC allows us to more efficiently explore new directions in advanced communications technologies. The close interaction of a broad set of expertise allows us to generate more relevant, robust tools for tailored health interventions. This synergy is demonstrated by the Centerís development of a re-usable tailoring system for both web- and print-based health interventions. Developed and enhanced over the last decade, this system embodies our significant experience conducting cancer prevention and control research applied to an extremely wide range of populations, settings, health topics, and advanced communications technologies.Third, Projects benefit from standard technologies, as well as active sharing of knowledge from a variety of disciplines and perspectives. For example, Tailoring Core members, working on all three Projects, identify best practices in tailoring algorithms used in one Project and suggest these practices to other investigators. Similarly, content and theoretical applications used in one Project are applied by the same behavior science staff in the Tailoring Core to other Projects. Specifically, it allows the use of common assessments, theoretical message composition, and graphics as empirical knowledge is gained. (09/01/2008 - 08/31/2013)

  • CECCR2 - Center of Excellence In Cancer Communications Research II

    PI: Victor J. Strecher, PhD, MPH

    The purpose of the University of Michigan Center of Excellence in Cancer Communications Research (CECCR) is to develop an efficient, theory-driven model for generating tailored health behavior interventions for many health behaviors and socio-demographic populations. (09/01/2008 - 08/31/2013)
