  • My GI Health V1.5

    New

    PI: William D. Chey, MD

    MyGIhealth V1.5 is an extension of My GI Health. The overview, aims, participants, and intervention, therefore, are identical to My GI Health. Version 1.5 expands the scope of the educational materials to include three new gastrointestinal (GI) illnesses: nausea/vomiting, bowel incontinence, and difficulty swallowing.  (01/01/2014 - 12/30/2014)

  • Dizztinct - Dizziness Treatment for Patients

    New

    PI: Kevin A. Kerber, MD

    Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is the most common peripheral vestibular disorder and causes disabling symptoms. BPPV produces a sensation of spinning called vertigo that is both paroxysmal and positional, meaning it occurs suddenly and with a change in head position. The disorder stems from free-floating particles that enter a semi-circular canal ("canaliths") of the inner ear. BPPV is diagnosed using a simple and reliable positional test, the Dix-Hallpike test (DHT). The treatment, the Canalith Repositioning Maneuver (CRM), is performed in minutes at the bedside. With these processes, patients can be readily identified and treated at the bedside, quickly and without expensive tests. Yet, these guideline-supported evidence-based practices are substantially underutilized. This project aims to implement these processes in a real world care setting, through a multi-faceted implementation strategy. The project has the potential to simultaneously improve patient outcomes and healthcare efficiencies. (08/01/2013 - 07/31/2017)

  • Individualized CANcer Care (I Can Care): Project 2

    PI: Jennifer J. Griggs, MD, MPH

    It's a challenge to know how much it helps to add systemic therapy (e.g., chemotherapy) to a woman's regimen of breast cancer care. For a woman with a favorable prognosis, chemotherapy may add relatively little benefit - but put her through a great deal of difficulty. Genomic testing can help understand who may benefit from chemotherapy and how it impacts the risk of recurrence. (07/01/2012 - 06/30/2017)

  • My GI Health

    PI: William D. Chey, MD , Brennan Spiegel, MD, MSHS

    Gastrointestinal (GI) illnesses are highly prevalent and expensive conditions. The goal is to develop and validate an evidence-based tool to assist clinicians in diagnosing, educating, and managing GI patients within the context of everyday practice. The MyGIhealth platform includes a new GI review of systems questionnaire that is administered through electronic portals (including personal computers and tablet devices) to collect, categorize, and interpret GI symptoms in a uniform and clinically useful manner. MyGIhealth is designed for use within everyday practice to help clinicians perform assessments and provide tailored feedback to their GI patients. (11/01/2011 - 10/31/2014)

  • 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 Project’s 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 Center’s 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)

  • Social & Cognitive Neuroscience Core (CECCR2)

    PI: Thad A. Polk, PhD

    Ultimately, the goal of CECCR2 aims to understand why and how communication affects health-related behavior and decision making. Specifically, we want to know how tailoring communication by specific individual characteristics influences subsequent health behaviors. For example:How does tailoring a message about smoking influence smokers’ subsequent decisions about quitting? How does tailoring a message about colorectal cancer affect people’s willingness to get screened? How does tailoring information about prostate cancer affect patients’ subsequent conversations with their physicians about their treatment preference? A significant obstacle to answering these kinds of questions is that health-related decisions can have many different causes; and these causes can be difficult to disentangle using purely behavioral measures. We therefore want to incorporate measures that begin to address the underlying neural and cognitive mechanisms that give rise to the observed behaviors. (09/01/2008 - 08/31/2013)

  • Biostatistics and Measurement Core (CECCR1 and CECCR2)

    PI: Roderick J. A. Little, PhD

    The development and evaluation of effective behavioral interventions depends on valid, reliable measurements, efficient statistical design and data collection methods, and appropriate data analysis techniques. Accordingly, biostatisticians continue to play a pivotal role in research conducted by the CECCR2. Key personnel include Dr. Rod Little, Dr. Vijay Nair and Dr. Mick Couper. Each are senior and highly-respected statisticians and methodologists, who played active roles in the CECCR1 and continue to be actively involved in developing testable specific aims and appropriate statistical design and analysis for the Projects in CECCR2. All are already well versed in the complex statistical issues associated with developing effective tailored health interventions, such as fractional factorial designs, data imputation, and mixed models with random effects.
