Abstract:
Although studies investigating symptom management and responses to various treatments have included older adults, studies specific to older adults are limited. The purpose of this presentation is to examine barriers encountered, and strategies used to increase subject accrual in an intervention study for older women with breast cancer. Specific aims are to: 1) ) identify patient, physician, and system-related barriers encountered during accrual and enrollment of older patients to randomized clinical trials, 2) integrate concepts from RogersÆ Diffusion of Innovations theory to enhance communication skills, education, and trust with older oncology patients, and 3) describe an evidenced-based education protocol for recruitment of older patients to randomized clinical trials. Intervention: The development process of a protocol useful for enhanced recruitment of older oncology patients for participation in randomized clinical trials will be presented. Protocol content focuses on identified barriers, patient recruitment, education, organizational structure, community resources, and members of the research team. RogersÆ Diffusion of Innovations provides a theory-driven framework for identifying barriers, strategies, and development of a protocol to enhance recruitment of older adults to clinical trial participation. Subject accrual and enrollment increased significantly following protocol development. Although older adults represent approximately two-thirds of cancer patients, they account for a small number of oncology clinical trial participants. Minimal research has been conducted with older patients with cancer to help us understand differences in treatment response and whether and how symptoms differ in older adults compared to younger adults. It is concerning that we have few evidence- based symptom management interventions, and that we have limited knowledge on treatment and dose-related responses in older adults with cancer. Researchers must integrate innovative strategies with existing recruitment procedures at their institutions and communities in order to successfully recruit, enroll, and retain older subjects with cancer to randomized clinical trials. Collaboration among the research team, organizational personnel, institutions, and the community is essential for successful subject accrual rates in research.
