Refining and Testing the Electronic Social Network Assessment Program (eSNAP) (NCT03026699)

National Cancer Institute (NCI)
National Institutes of Health (NIH)
University of Utah
The purpose of the study is to learn more about neuro-oncology caregivers' quality of life and how friends and families help neuro-oncology cancer caregivers at different times during treatment.
  • Behavioral: eSNAP
    Participants in the intervention group will then be given a tablet loaded with the eSNAP application and asked to create a visualization of their social networks. Upon completion, participants will be asked to review their ecomaps and complete the user experience questionnaire.
    • Electronic Social Network Assessment Program
  • Behavioral: Questionnaires
    Participants will complete demographics and baseline (T1; baseline) questionnaires. For all participants Time 2 (T2; 3 week) and Time 3 (T3; 6 week) questionnaires will be completed either by phone, mail, or email (depending on participant preference) to assess longer-term effects of eSNAP on outcomes versus controls.

    Former Aim 1: Refine eSNAP data-gathering and visualization prototypes based on evaluations of user experience, including usability, satisfaction and applicability. The refining process was completed at the University of Utah.

    Aim 2: Test the feasibility of implementing eSNAP in a neuro-oncology clinical setting and collect preliminary effectiveness data of eSNAP on Family Caregiver outcomes, including quality of life and stress, and mediators (Family Caregiver social support utilization and burden). The feasibility process will take place at Moffitt Cancer Center.

    This study will be a 2x2 longitudinal design. Caregivers of primary brain tumor patients will be compared to caregivers of patients with secondary brain tumors (brain metastases) to determine if there is something unique about the cancer-specific duties of primary versus secondary brain tumors that could impact the effectiveness of the eSNAP application. An intervention group will be compared to a control group for both types of caregivers. Participants will be randomized 2:1 for the intervention and control. All caregivers will be followed for 6 weeks and will be asked to complete questionnaires at 3 time points; caregivers in the intervention group will also be asked to use the eSNAP application at time 1, which will be available to them for the duration of the study.
