M-Tech Trial Summary

This trial assesses the feasibility and preliminary efficacy of a care delivery intervention in older patients with hematologic malignancies receiving outpatient chemotherapy.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for people aged 60 or older with certain blood cancers (AML, MDS, MM, DLBCL) who are getting outpatient chemo and can walk a short distance. They shouldn't be planning on stem cell transplants soon, must speak English, have an ECOG status of 0-3 indicating varying levels of activity, and no exercise restrictions from their doctor.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study compares a new tech-supported care method called M-Tech to usual care in managing treatment side effects and improving patient outcomes during chemotherapy. It will also look at healthcare use and biological markers in patients.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
While specific side effects aren't listed for the M-Tech intervention itself since it's technology-based support during chemotherapy, typical chemo side effects may include fatigue, nausea, increased infection risk, hair loss, and potential impact on blood counts.

M-Tech Trial Design

2Treatment groups
Experimental Treatment
Active Control
Group I: M-TechExperimental Treatment1 Intervention
M-Tech involves the use of a mobile app delivery platform to several interventions. The components of M-Tech include: 1) Hybrid in-person and telehealth visits with oncology providers; 2) Disease-specific education videos; 3) Activity level monitoring via a wearable device with promotion of physical activity; 4) Symptom monitoring with provision of self-management strategies, and 5) Medication management.
Group II: Usual CareActive Control1 Intervention
Participants randomized to the usual care arm will receive standard of care.

What objective results is this clinical trial hoping to accomplish?

"This research endeavour, which spans 4-5 months, aims to assess patient Retention rates. The secondary objectives are the Difference between experimental and active comparator arms - Functional Status (measured on a three-point Likert scale via the OARS IADL subscale), Difference between experimental and active comparator arms - Quality of Life (evaluated using FACT-G's 27 items divided into PWB, SWB EWB &FWB scales)and finally Difference between experimental and active comparator arms - Healthcare Utilization that captures hospitalizations/ER visits through medical chart review."
