Multimedia Intervention in Patients With Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP)
If you agree to take part in this study, you will view the website, take part in a
one-on-one interview or a small group discussion (a focus group), and one or more
questionnaires. You may come to M. D. Anderson to take part in this study, which may take
place during your routine doctor visit, if this is possible. If you are enrolled in a
registry outside of M. D. Anderson, or if you do not wish to come to M. D. Anderson, you
will access the website over the internet.
You will be asked to fill out a brief knowledge and quality of life questionnaire that will
take 10-15 minutes to complete. For the website, you will be asked to view (all or parts) of
an early version. The website is designed to offer information and support for adolescents
and young adults with FAP. Viewing the website will take about 30-60 minutes, depending on
what stage of development the website is in at the time.
For the one-on-one interview or focus group (after viewing the website), you will speak with
a research assistant. You will be asked for your permission to record this interview or
focus group on an audiotape so that study staff can collect all of your responses. During
this interview or focus group, you will be asked about different aspects of the website,
including if you like it, if the information is useful to you, and if the website is easy to
understand and use. You will also be asked about ways that you think the website can be
improved or changed to better serve adolescents and young adults patients with FAP. This
interview or focus group will take about 15-30 minutes to complete.
For the questionnaire, some participants (those who view later versions of the website) will
also be asked to complete the Website Analysis and Measurement Inventory (WAMMI). The WAMMI
is a questionnaire that will measure if the website is appealing and easy to use for
adolescents and young adults patients with FAP. Examples of questions on the WAMMI will be
about whether you can quickly find what you want on the website and whether everything on
this website easy to understand. You will be able to answer the questions on a 5-point scale
from "Strongly Agree" to "Strongly Disagree." The questionnaire will take about 5-10 minutes
After you have finished viewing the website and completed the interview (and/or
questionnaire), you will be given the option to speak with a genetic counselor if you have
any questions about FAP.
Length of Study:
Your total time on this study will range from about 45 minutes to 2 hours. Your
participation will be over in this study once you have finished viewing the website and
completed the interview and/or questionnaire.
This is an investigational study. Up to 55 patients will take part in this study. All
will be enrolled at M. D. Anderson.
