Remote Monitoring With Health-Coaching to Improve Quality of Life in Older Patients With Multiple Myeloma

Study Purpose

This clinical trial tests the effectiveness of a home-based mindfulness physical activity program with remote monitoring combined with structured telephone-based health coaching to decrease fatigue and improve quality of life in older patients with multiple myeloma (MM). Studies have shown that MM patients have the highest symptom burden among all blood cancers, with older patients experiencing more symptoms and problems, such as fatigue and decreased quality of life, compared to younger patients. There is some data to support that physical activity may have beneficial effects on fatigue, physical function, and quality of life in older cancer patients. Studies have also shown that older patients prefer activities that are gentle, holistic, and home-based. Mindfulness-based interventions have been shown to have positive effects on sleep, depression, anxiety and cancer-related fatigue. Health coaching is a patient centered behavioral change intervention that is delivered by various healthcare professionals and involves goal-setting, self-discovery, and accountability. Health coaching interventions have been shown to increase physical activity levels and improve quality of life. A home-based mindfulness physical activity program with remote monitoring combined with structured telephone-based health coaching may decrease fatigue and improve the quality of life in older patients with MM.

Study Type

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.


An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.


Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Phase

Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE:

  • I. To assess the effect-size of a novel combined home-based mindfulness physical activity program with telephonic health coaching on 1) patient-reported fatigue assessed by the Brief Fatigue Inventory (BFI), Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy-Fatigue (FACIT-F), Multidimensional Fatigue Syndrome Inventory Short Form (MFSI-SF), Modified Fatigue Impact Scale (MFIS), and Cancer Fatigue Score (CFS) questionnaires and 2) Health-related quality of life assessed by the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Core Quality of Life Questionnaire Core 30 (EORTC QLQ-C30), EORTC QLQ - Multiple Myeloma Module 20 (MY20), and EORTC QLQ elderly cancer patients (ELD)14 questionnaires, and 3) physical activity levels measured by steps per day.
OUTLINE: Patients participate in remote monitored home-based physical activity sessions including flexibility practice, slow walking and breathing exercises daily on 6 out of 7 days a week and receive telephone health coaching over 5-20 minutes once a week for 12 weeks. Patients also participate in a brief telephone interview at the end of 12 weeks. Additionally, patients wear a monitor on the wrist to monitor physical activity for 7 days during enrollment and at 3 months.
