Trial Information

The Mental Health and Dynamic Referral for Oncology Protocol (MHADRO)


The investigators are interested in the feasibility of using computer assisted screening and
assessment to meet the psychosocial needs of people with cancer. The investigators are
studying two different interventions. Both groups will receive health information, referral
information, and resources. One group will also receive tailored feedback reports.


Inclusion Criteria:



- cancer diagnosis

Type of Study:

Interventional

Study Design:

Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Health Services Research

Outcome Measure:

Decrease in psychological stress

Outcome Description:

Both groups will receive a full assessment, referral information, and resources. Only the intervention group will have the option of immediately sending their contact information to a counselor/mental health provider and receive a tailored feedback report with specific recommendations about managing their psychological and social needs, and provide education about ways to improve their quality of life. We anticipate that distressed subjects assigned to the Intervention Group will exhibit larger decreases in psychological distress when compared against the Control Group.
