Computer-Based Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment in Oncology for Individuals 70 or Older With Colorectal, Breast or Lung Cancer
- Participants will complete the geriatric assessment on the computer either at their
home via the web (if they have internet access) or in the clinic at their next visit
prior to seeing the doctor.
- All individuals will have a unique way to sign on to the computer program that protects
the information so that only the participant and the research team will be able to view
it. Individuals who require assistance to answer the questions will have help provided
by a research assistant.
- We will ask participants to complete the geriatric assessment a second time at 4 months
after they have enrolled on the study or 1 month after completing their chemotherapy
treatment, whichever occurs first.
Observational Model: Case-Only, Time Perspective: Prospective
To determine the feasibility and added clinical utility of a self-administered computer-based version of an abbreviated comprehensive geriatric assessment tool.
