Quality of Life clinical trials at UC Cancer
4 research studies open to eligible people
Clinic-Based Financial Coaching and Family Health and Development
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
This study will examine the impact of clinic-based financial coaching on parent health-related quality of life and child development measures, as well as family social needs for families with young children receiving pediatric care at a primary care practice in the Los Angeles County safety net.
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for Parkinson's Disease: A Longitudinal Study
open to eligible people ages 41 years and up
To investigate the efficacy of Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR),to improve HRQoL, cognition, and mood, as well as to determine the longevity of the treatment response in individuals with Parkinson's disease (PD).
Starzl Network Patient Reported Outcomes
open to eligible people ages 8-20
This study uses a smartphone application/web interface (RealTime Clinic; RTC) to collect patient and parent reports of a pediatric liver transplant recipient's quality of life (QOL), and examines the extent to which QOL evaluations can be integrated into care with the help of the application. The QOL measure that is used in this study is the Pediatric Liver Transplant Quality of Life (PeLTQL) questionnaire. Utilization, effectiveness, and efficiency data are evaluated. Hypotheses are fully described in the protocol. The primary hypothesis is that 80% of recruited child-proxy dyads will have at least one RTC-enabled PeLTQL score at 12 months. Other hypotheses look at implementation metrics and patient outcomes.
Identifying Predictors of Poor Health-Related Quality-of-Life Among Pediatric Hematopoietic Stem Cell Donors
open to eligible people ages 5 years and up
To compare donors to their non-donor counterparts and healthy controls as well as to generate trajectory classes based on longitudinal patterns of donor HRQoL and identify predictors of poor donor HRQoL.
