What's the purpose of this trial?
This study will evaluate the feasibility of a digital health coaching program for adults with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma (R/R MM). One hundred adults with R/R MM will be enrolled at The University of Washington. Individuals who agree to take part in the study and sign an informed consent will be enrolled in a 3-month digital health coaching program. The program will provide weekly phone calls plus the delivery of learning materials to text or email. Questionnaires and data from a wrist-worn activity tracker will be collected. Outcomes include treatment and symptom experience, quality of life, financial burden, and how confident people feel to manage their health. Information about your condition and treatment will be collected, along with how often you use services like the emergency room, for care. This data will provide a better understanding of how a person experiences their R/R MM.
This trial is currently open and accepting patients.
What will happen during the trial?
You may be able to join this trial if you:
The following criteria is a partial list of reasons why patients may be
eligible to participate in this clinical trial. Further evaluation with a medical professional is
1. Age 18 or older
2. Confirmed diagnosis of MM as determined by participants' primary physicians at the study site. Patients with concurrent AL amyloidosis will be eligible.
3. Initiation of at least the second line of MM-directed therapy for multiple myeloma at time of study enrollment. Participants must have been exposed to at least one proteasome inhibitor (PI) and/or one immunomodulatory drug (IMiD).
1. Individuals who are terminally ill, defined as individuals identified by their physician as likely having 6 months or less to live, or those individuals transitioned to comfort measures only (meaning only supportive care measures without curative focused treatment)
2. Individuals who have previously participated in Pack Health digital health coaching
3. Physician-assessed lack of sufficient English proficiency
4. Lack of ownership of a personal smartphone or device allowing for access to text, email or mobile application
5. Any serious and/or unstable pre-existing medical, psychiatric, or other condition that could interfere with participant's safety, provision of informed consent, or compliance with study procedures
6. Concurrent enrollment on a therapeutic study in R/R MM that precludes simultaneous enrollment onto our non-therapeutic study
