  • Integrative Palliative Care/Psycho-Oncology Telehealth Intervention in Patients With Advanced Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This trial investigates whether a joint and integrative approach to cancer care using palliative care and psycho-oncology is possible, and if it's beneficial to patients with cancer that has spread to other places on the body (advanced). The information gained from this study may help patients to learn about the medicinal and non-medicinal strategies to cope with their symptoms and side effects of their diagnosis and treatment while receiving peer support, in addition to standard individualized medical care.

  • Introducing Palliative Care (PC) Within the Treatment of End Stage Liver Disease (ESLD)

    open to eligible people ages 18-120

    This is a comparative effectiveness study of two pragmatic models aiming to introduce palliative care for end stage liver disease patients. The 2 comparators are: Model 1: Consultative Palliative Care (i.e. direct access to Palliative Care provider), Model 2: Trained Hepatologist- led PC intervention (i.e. a hepatologist will receive formal training to deliver Palliative Care services) Primary Outcome: The change in quality of life from baseline to 3 months post enrollment as assessed by FACT-Hep (Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy- Hepatobiliary). 14 Clinical Centers across US are recruited to participate in this study.
