Brief Summary:
This project assesses the feasibility and usability of the geriatric assessment platform (electronic Geriatric Assessment Platform or eGAP in 50 older patients with cancer, their caregivers, and their oncology team. Using an iterative process, we will refine the eGAP based on input from stakeholders.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Cancer Behavioral: Behavioral Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
A geriatric assessment is a multidisciplinary diagnostic process that can detect medical, psychosocial and functional problems not identified by routine evaluation. This can subsequently guide management of the identified problems. However, the time and resources required to incorporate a geriatric assessment into clinic visits remain the primary barriers for implementation. There is a need to increase the adoption of the geriatric assessment among general oncologists and to address the associated resource limitations. Our long-term goal is to utilize an electronic platform to facilitate completion of the geriatric assessment. This project assesses the feasibility and usability of the geriatric assessment platform (electronic Geriatric Assessment Platform or eGAP) in 50 older patients with cancer, their caregivers, and oncology providers. Using an iterative process, we will refine the eGAP based on input from stakeholders (patients, caregivers, oncologists, nurses, advanced practitioners)

Actual Study Start Date : December 7, 2021
Estimated Primary Completion Date : June 30, 2022
Estimated Study Completion Date : June 30, 2022

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Experimental
The eGAP consists of validated questionnaires that are used to assess health status of older adults with cancer. Based on patient responses, tailored recommendations will be provided.
Behavioral: Behavioral
eGAP that allows patients to complete validated questionnaires, and these questionnaires will be summarized and recommendations provided to the treating team




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Feasibility Retention Rate [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
    Percentage of patients completing the assessments that are assigned to them on eGAP


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Recruitment rates [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
    Percentage of patients who are approached and agree to enroll

  2. Self-Report Completion Time [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
    Time spent on completing the self-reported assessments on the eGAP

  3. System Usability Scale [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
    For patients, caregivers, and oncology providers: score on 10-item scale, ranging 0-100; higher score corresponds to greater usability
