How to effectively tailor website information to older cancer patients’ mode preferences: A Randomized Controlled Trial
PhD student: Hao Nguyen MSc
In this PhD project we focus on how online information should be presented to older cancer patients. In a randomized controlled trial, we investigate the effects of exposure to a website that is tailored to colorectal cancer patients’ mode preferences (offering choices between text only, text with illustrations, video or a combination of these modes) as compared to exposure to a website presenting the information in a standardized, fixed manner without offering choices (i.e. either text only, text with illustrations, or video).
We particularly focus on differences between older (≥ 65 year) and younger (< 65 year) patients, taking into account both age and age-related factors. The primary outcome is distress before and after the consultations with health professionals. Secondary outcomes are communication during the consultations (immediate endpoints); patients’ evaluation of the communication and information recall (intermediate endpoints); perceived quality of the decision making process and quality of care (longer term endpoints).
Ultimately, we aim to establish theory- and evidence-based guidance for optimal information provision to older cancer patients.
