Brief Summary:
This study uses the opinions of adults between the ages of 50 and 73 years old to develop and test an interactive nutrition module for use in an existing colorectal cancer screening intervention using virtual human technology. This study will contribute to knowledge of what messages and graphics promote understanding of cancer risk and promote screening.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Colorectal Cancer Other: virtual technology - high interactive Other: virtual technology - low interactive Other: non-colorectal cancer related module Not Applicable

Layout table for study information
Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 180 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single (Participant)
Primary Purpose: Screening
Official Title: Adapting and Pilot Testing a Nutrition Module Delivered With Virtual Human Technology for Colorectal Cancer Prevention
Actual Study Start Date : January 6, 2020
Estimated Primary Completion Date : January 2021
Estimated Study Completion Date : January 2021

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: high interactive virtual human administered nutrition module
The virtual health assistant will interactively collect nutrition information (alcohol, red meat, and processed meat intake) and report risk information back to users in visual and audio format
Other: virtual technology - high interactive
Participants engage with web-based cancer prevention content and answer a short series of questions designed to assess their baseline risk for colon cancer and dietary intake. Interactive nutrition risk feedback will be customized based on user input.
Other Name: Virtual human nutrition module

Active Comparator: low interactive virtual human module
Complete the current intervention module that includes items assessing alcohol and meat intake.
Other: virtual technology - low interactive
Participants engage with web-based cancer prevention content and answer a short series of questions designed to assess their baseline risk for colon cancer. Minimally interactive risk feedback will be delivered.
Other Name: virtual human standard

Sham Comparator: attention control module
The attention control group, will complete a related module not related to colorectal cancer or nutrition
Other: non-colorectal cancer related module
Participants engage with web-based content not related to colorectal cancer or nutrition.
Other Name: attention control




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Risk perceptions for colorectal cancer [ Time Frame: up to 2 hours ]
    Items measured on a 10-point Likert scale, (e.g. "My chances of getting colorectal cancer are high")

  2. Intentions to screen for colorectal cancer [ Time Frame: up to 2 hours ]
    Items measured on a 10-point Likert scale, (e.g. "I want to get screened for colorectal cancer")

  3. Information seeking behavior [ Time Frame: up to 2 hours ]
    Does participant click on link to more information. The survey platforms event tracking feature will be used to track clicks (yes/no) for more information.
