|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01241929|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : November 16, 2010
Last Update Posted : July 10, 2012
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Advanced Cancer||Behavioral: video decision aid|
A.1. Aim 1: To recruit 150 subjects with advanced cancer and randomly assign these subjects to one of two advance care planning (ACP) modalities: 1. a video visually depicting CPR (intervention) or 2. a verbal narrative describing the CPR.
Hypothesis 1: It is feasible to recruit and randomize 150 subjects with advanced cancer.
A.2. Aim 2: To compare the care preferences for CPR among 150 subjects randomized to video vs. verbal narrative intervention.
Hypothesis 2: Subjects randomized to the video intervention will be significantly more likely to opt NOT to have CPR compared to those randomized to the verbal narrative.
A.3. Aim 3: To compare knowledge assessment of CPR for 150 subjects randomized to video vs. verbal narrative intervention.
Hypothesis 3: When compared to subjects randomized to the verbal narrative arm, subjects in the video group will have higher knowledge assessment scores when asked questions regarding their understanding of CPR.

Experimental: video decision aid
Video decision aid arm
Behavioral: video decision aid
video of CPR
No Intervention: Usual Care -- Verbal Description Arm
Verbal description of CPR (i.e., without the video).
- preferences for CPR [ Time Frame: within one hour after oncology visit ]CPR preference after visit to oncologist
- knowledge of CPR [ Time Frame: baseline and post-intervention ]assess knowledge of CPR
- stability of preferences [ Time Frame: after 6-8 weeks ]assess CPR preferences again
- predictors of preferences [ Time Frame: post-intervention ]predictors of preferences for CPR
