Home-Based Symptom Monitoring: Its Impact on Cancer Care Team Behaviors and Patient Outcomes
Patients will be randomly assigned to one of two groups. One group will be offered an
Internet assisted home-based symptom reporting system Cancer Symptom Monitor (CSM) for a
twelve-month study period. Patient and care team evaluations will be measured using
quantitative and qualitative methods (via focus groups). The second group will receive
"standard care" without home-based symptom monitoring. Both groups will be evaluated at
baseline, 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, & 12 months, for symptom levels and overall quality of life during
the twelve-month study period.
