Study Title

Cancer Symptom Management Among Spanish-Speaking Patients


The goal of this study is to develop the first Spanish-language app for Hispanic cancer patients that targets patient activation to improve cancer symptom self-management.


Aim 1. Characterize Spanish-speaking Hispanic cancer survivors lived experiences with cancer symptoms, symptom management, patient activation, patient-provider communication, and preferences for cancer symptom management smartphone apps via qualitative focus groups. Aim 2. Examine descriptive data related to patient activation, symptom burden, HRQOL, and other patient reported outcomes (PROs) among Spanish-speaking Hispanic cancer patients. These data will be used to characterize the sample in relation to published severity thresholds and provide preliminary data for a future NIH grant proposal.
