Post-Operative Ambulatory Challenge and Exercise (PACE) Trial
Sponsor:

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

Information provided by (Responsible Party):

Michael T. Jaklitsch

Brief Summary:

This research study is evaluating the postoperative results in terms of quality of life and functional recovery of elderly patients after cancer surgery.

Condition or disease

Cancer

Intervention/treatment

Mobility Tracker

Phase

Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

This is a pilot study, designed to collect data on steps walked (ambulation) per day of lobectomy patients after surgery. While the investigators know ambulation improves outcomes after surgery, there is no institutional policy, set of patient goals, or method for deciding which patients require further resources, such as physical therapy. Data collected will be used to set up a hospital-wide strategy for patients to achieve post-operative ambulation milestones more readily.

Study Type : Interventional
Estimated Enrollment : 27 participants
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Official Title: Post-Operative Ambulatory Challenge and Exercise (PACE) Trial
Actual Study Start Date : August 2, 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date : April 1, 2020
Estimated Study Completion Date : April 1, 2020
Arm Intervention/treatment

Experimental: Mobility Tracker

Each patient will be provided by the research team staff with a new mobility tracker The standard pre-operative assessment, surgical procedure and post-operative care will still be done Measurements of each patient (steps, distance and calories) will be obtained by the research staff

Other: Mobility Tracker
