Study Title

Developing a Patient- and Caregiver-Centered Psycho-Educational Tool to Support Recovery after Cystectomy


The purpose of this study is to develop and test educational resources that may help people with bladder cancer to be better prepared for treatment and recovery.


Pilot Aim 1. Adapt a psychoeducational intervention to the needs and concerns of bladder cancer patients. Employing a user-centered design process, we will develop a multimedia educational tool (HISE) focused on patient-centered concerns and needs related to preparing for and recovering from cystectomy. Pilot Aim 2. Evaluate user acceptance of the adapted content and format among a group of cystectomy patients. The adapted psychoeducational intervention will be reviewed with bladder cancer patients previously treated with cystectomy to evaluate its acceptability and usability. Feedback and insights gained during this process will be used to revise and refine HISE.
