Description

Summary

This is the first study of digital life coaching (DLC) to engage patients during the peri-HCT period that is punctuated by intensive life changes. DLC may circumvent these limitations by combining the integrative cross-dimensional nature of life coaching with the advantages of mobile health technology. The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether ongoing participant engagement with a DLC platform is feasible for multiple myeloma (MM) patients actively undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HCT).

Official Title

Digital Life Coaching in Multiple Myeloma Patients Undergoing Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation

Details

Participants will receive unlimited access to Pack Health's DLC platform during a 16-week period encompassing pre-HCT conditioning chemotherapy, post-HCT recovery, and 100-day follow-up. Participants will engage with Pack Health's DLC platform and complete quality of life assessments for 16 weeks beginning from enrollment. At the conclusion of the treatment period, participants will be asked to rate their satisfaction with the DLC platform Primary Objective: To evaluate the rate of ongoing participant engagement with a DLC platform during the study period Secondary Objectives: - To assess quality of life among participants during the study period - To assess psychosocial distress among participants during the study period - To assess sleep disturbances among participants during the study period - To assess participant satisfaction with the DLC platform at the end of the study period Exploratory Objectives: - To assess benzodiazepine and zolpidem-class drug usage for anxiety or insomnia among participants during the study period - To assess communications with treatment teams among participants during the study period - To assess 100-day clinical outcomes among participants at the end of the study period
