Lung Cancer Clinical Trial

Genetics and Shared Decision Making in Improving Care for Patients With Stage IVA-C Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

Summary

This trial studies the use of genetics and shared decision making in improving care for patients with stage IVA-C non-small cell lung cancer. Developing educational tools may help patients with non-small cell lung cancer to increase patient treatment knowledge, reduce decisional conflict, and promote treatment shared decision making with their health care providers.

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. Use the information on genomic tumor diagnostics, provider treatment recommendations, and patient and provider feedback on the treatment decision making process, which will be used to develop materials and methods to adapt an existing decision counseling program (DCP) for use with patients diagnosed with advanced non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) as a standard component of clinical care.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. Pilot test the adapted DCP in a subset of patients to determine the feasibility of delivering the DCP session.

II. Assess DCP effects on patient treatment knowledge and decisional conflict. III. Assess treatment choice.

OUTLINE:

PHASE I: Use physician input to develop draft treatment education materials and use patient input to adapt an online decision counseling application for use in helping patients clarify treatment preference.

PHASE II: Patients complete a treatment decision counseling session/interview about genetic testing and supportive/palliative care with a qualified member of the research team in-person or via telephone. Health care providers receive a 1-page summary of session results for use in treatment shared decision making at the next office visit.

After completion of study, participants are followed up at 30 and 60 days.
