Quality of Life clinical trials at University of California Health

5 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Clinic-Based Financial Coaching and Family Health and Development

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study will examine the impact of clinic-based financial coaching on parent health-related quality of life and child development measures, as well as family social needs for families with young children receiving pediatric care at a primary care practice in the Los Angeles County safety net.

  • Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for Parkinson's Disease: A Longitudinal Study

    open to eligible people ages 41 years and up

    To investigate the efficacy of Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR),to improve HRQoL, cognition, and mood, as well as to determine the longevity of the treatment response in individuals with Parkinson's disease (PD).

  • Acupressure for COVID-19 Related Quality of Life and Stress

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study is being conducted to evaluate the efficacy of acupressure in promoting health and well-being among healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. The investigators hypothesize that providing participants with a remote and standardized self-acupressure training program will improve HRQOL and the perception of stress. In the event that the study demonstrates acupressure to be safe and effective for this indication, the training could be scaled up and deployed at low-cost nationally and internationally.

  • Digital Symptom Tracking, Patient Engagement and Quality of Life in Advanced Cancer

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    The purpose of this study is to (1) describe patient and clinician engagement in web-based symptom self-monitoring, (2) identify differences in symptom management between intervention and usual care groups, and (3) identify potential outcomes of real-time symptom tracking and management. With the assistance of the study coordinator, participants randomized to the intervention will create an account with Noona. Patients will be instructed to log symptoms as often as relevant using their own personal devices. Patients will also be prompted once per week for 24 weeks to log any recent symptoms. These participants will be sent a Symptom Questionnaire (SQ) via the Noona tool that summarizes their symptoms and distress one week prior to each oncology clinic visit. Symptoms designated as clinically severe either during regular symptom logging or via the SQ will trigger a prompt to contact the clinical team for immediate follow-up.

  • Starzl Network Patient Reported Outcomes

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This study uses a smartphone application/web interface (RealTime Clinic; RTC) to collect patient and parent reports of a pediatric liver transplant recipient's quality of life (QOL), and examines the extent to which QOL evaluations can be integrated into care with the help of the application. The QOL measure that is used in this study is the Pediatric Liver Transplant Quality of Life (PeLTQL) questionnaire. Utilization, effectiveness, and efficiency data are evaluated. Hypotheses are fully described in the protocol. The primary hypothesis is that 80% of recruited child-proxy dyads will have at least one RTC-enabled PeLTQL score at 12 months. Other hypotheses look at implementation metrics and patient outcomes.
