Lung Cancer Clinical Trial
Risk Stratification for Patients With Hospital-diagnosed Advanced Lung Cancer
This study explores whether supportive care interventions that might reduce rehospitalization could be implemented and feasible, in subjects within a high-risk group of subjects with newly diagnosed hospitalized advanced lung cancer (ALC).
Subjects will be considered high risk if they have small cell histology, longer than 8 days hospitalization, high comorbidity, emergency department use or hospitalization in the previous 6 months, prescription of a wheelchair on hospital discharge, or Black and/or Hispanic race. Supportive care interventions such as navigation and palliative care will be recommended for this group.
All hospitalized subjects with newly diagnosed ALC will be offered web- or telephone-based patient-reported outcome (PRO) symptom monitoring for 90 days following hospital discharge if they provide consent. Medical record evaluation of consented subjects will provide data for risk assessment and the high-risk group definition. Healthcare utilization including emergency department visits, hospitalizations, outpatient palliative care, and cancer treatment received will be compared.
Age ≥ 18 years at the time of screening.
Hospital-diagnosed Advanced lung cancer with histological confirmation of disease or suspected lung cancer in the opinion of the treating oncologist.
