    PI: Mike Dorsch

    Despite major scientific advances, heart failure continues to be a common and costly condition, and each year more than 1 million people are admitted to an inpatient setting for acute heart failure. There is an urgent need for low-cost solutions to reduce morbidity in heart failure.  Several studies have shown that self-monitoring can improve quality of life in heart failure patients. Self-monitoring includes daily tracking of symptoms, weight, and exercise. Accurate self-monitoring, feedback and self-efficacy (an individualís belief in their ability to perform a specific behavior) are essential components of the self-regulation cycle and are critical for managing heart failure.  ManageHF4Life is a mobile application designed to promote self-monitoring and self-management of heart failure. Behavior change interventions that focus on self-regulation are particularly well suited for automation. The use of technology can decrease the burden of self-monitoring and enhance self-regulatory efforts. Cyclical processes of goal setting, behavior change, and goal assessment can be easily tracked, charted, reviewed and automated. (01/01/2017 - 01/31/2019)

  • Cessation Messages & Neural Activation

    PI: Hannah Faye C. Chua, PhD

    This study explores whether listening to high-tailored smoking cessation messages activates the rostral medial prefrontal region more than listening to linguistically comparable but low-tailored cessation messages. (09/01/2006 - 08/31/2007)

  • CSATS

    PI: Masahito Jimbo, MD, PhD, MPH

    Cancer Screening Adherence through Technology-Enhanced Shared Decision Making (CSATS) is a tailored behavioral intervention to improve patient adherence to colorectal cancer screening (CRC). CSATS links a computerized screening prompt/reminder system with a tailored behavioral intervention. The intervention combines a screening decision aid with a risk assessment. Upon completion of the intervention, a recommendation is provided to both patient and physician to enhance shared decision making between the two. (01/02/2006 - 08/31/2007)

  • THeME Non-responders

    PI: Mick P. Couper, MSS, PhD, MA

    The web is an attractive option for the implementation of surveys, but it suffers from potential limitations, including non-response. This study's primary goal is to identify ways to reduce non-response, attrition, and missing data for web surveys in parallel with the core research activities of the CECCR Research Projects.

  • coloWeb (Ruffin)

    PI: Mack T. Ruffin IV, MD, MPH

    This study tests the efficacy of a multimedia decision aid that addresses the facts and myths about colorectal cancer, identifies the risk factors for colorectal cancer, and reviews the options for colorectal screening. Work for the development on this web-based decision aid is based on results from the coloWeb (Katz) project. (10/01/2000 - 09/30/2003)
