PURPOSE/AIM: To examine treatment decision making in older adults aged 60 years and above with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma. The specific aims of the study are to
1) Describe physicians' personal perspectives on the decision making process and perceptions of patients' preferences for participation in decision making.
2) Examine patients' personal perspectives of the decision making process including personal values, preferences for participation, and past experiences relevant to treatment decision making.
3) Describe information needs and preferences for participation in decision making in older adults newly diagnosed with multiple myeloma.
4) Explore the association of socio-demographic variables with information needs priorities and preferences for participation in decision making.
BACKGROUND: Multiple myeloma is a B-cell malignancy of the plasma cells primarily affecting older adults with median age of diagnosis at 65. There is considerable evidence that patients want to be informed and consulted with regard to the impact of treatment on not only survival but also quality of life. However, no data exist regarding the process of treatment decision making and degree of control preferences over treatment decisions in older adults diagnosed with multiple myeloma.
DESIGN AND METHOD: This study will employ a multi-method, cross-sectional survey design. Physicians and patients will be interviewed separately to describe how treatment decisions are made from both perspectives. After the interview, patients will be asked to report their degree of preferred control over treatment decisions using the Control Preference Scale (CPS) and complete the Information Need questionnaire to asses their information priorities for participation in the decision making process.
RESULTS: This study is currently accruing subjects. Preliminary data will be analyzed by March 2010.
IMPLICATIONS: Physicians and other clinicians will gain further understanding of patients' information needs and control preferences over treatment decisions. This information is important in improving patient participation and satisfaction in care. The findings will guide the development of web-based patient education material and treatment decision tools.
