1. Movva, Praveen Krishna. Perceptions of clinical research coordinators about the quality of monitoring and major failings/concerns in the monitoring process.

Degree: MS, Health Sciences, 2013, Eastern Michigan University

The primary goals of clinical research monitoring are to assure adequate protection of the rights of human subjects, and the safety of all subjects involved in clinical investigations or clinical trials, and the quality and integrity of the data generated from clinical trials. Adequate monitoring of clinical trials can prevent the occurrence of significant problems, which may affect the entire process of bringing a new drug to market. The proper monitoring of clinical trials is a challenge. In spite of well established regulations and guidance, there remain many monitoring related concerns in clinical trials (e.g. protocol deviations and violations, IRB violations, improper adverse event reporting, etc). The survey results indicate that clinical research coordinators believe that there are concerns in the monitoring process, and that the quality of monitoring varies from monitor to monitor. Results also suggest that some monitors are exceptional, where as some monitors are abysmal. Advisors/Committee Members: Stephen A. Sonstein, PhD, Chair, Ronald F. Maio, D.O., MS, Irwin Martin, PhD.

2. Krzyzaniak, Cari N. Cognitive and emotional barriers to colorectal cancer surveillance: Increasing screening rates within the community.

Degree: MS, Health Sciences, 2008, Eastern Michigan University

Background: The rate of colorectal cancer (CRC) screening in the United States continues to be low, allowing colorectal cancers to remain undiagnosed and mortality rates to remain high. Current literature points to lack of education, healthcare access, and physician counseling as key barriers to screening, in addition to cognitive-emotional apprehensions. Objectives: This study examined whether cognitive-emotional apprehensions are barriers to screening despite physician recommendation. Moreover, it examined what particular cognitive-emotional barriers inhibit participation and how these barriers can potentially be alleviated. Methods: A convenience sample of 40 faculty members at Eastern Michigan University were surveyed about attitudes toward screening. Results: One half of non-screeners reported that cognitive-emotional apprehensions limited their participation in screening tests. Predictors of adherence included concerns about embarrassment or modesty, concerns about test preparation, fear of pain, and fear of finding cancer. Conclusions: Cognitive-emotional apprehensions are significant barriers to CRC screening and may be improved by patient counseling. Advisors/Committee Members: Stephen A. Sonstein, PhD, Chair.

Subjects/Keywords: Medical screening; Colon (Anatomy) Cancer Diagnosis; Health behavior; Community Health and Preventive Medicine

3. McAllister, Amanda M. Demographic profile of clinical research volunteers: Improving the effectiveness of promotional recruitment.

Degree: MS, Health Sciences, 2009, Eastern Michigan University

Background: Successfully recruiting participants for clinical trials is a challenge that crosses all medical disciplines. Slow enrollment to clinical trials delays the completion of clinical research studies. Objectives: This study collected demographic data of current and past clinical trial volunteers. Furthermore, it examined similarities and differences between clinical trial volunteers, which provides deeper understandings of who volunteers are and which may allow for improved education and recruitment of subjects. Methods: 87 adults who had participated in at least one clinical research study were surveyed. Findings: *Healthcare represented the most common career at 27.6%. *93.1% received education beyond high school. *0% met the Investigator’s definition for low socioeconomic status. *4.6% had no healthcare coverage. *54% associate themselves with the Democratic Party. Conclusions: There does not appear to be any strong commonalities among clinical research volunteers and the following demographics: career, education level, household income, religious affiliation, political affiliation, and musical affiliation. Advisors/Committee Members: Stephen A. Sonstein, PhD, Chair.

Subjects/Keywords: Clinical trials; Patient participation; Human experimentation in medicine; Investigative Techniques
