Young Melanoma Family Facebook Intervention or Healthy Lifestyle Facebook Intervention in Improving Skin Examination in Participants With Melanoma and Their Families

Study Purpose

This trial studies how well Young Melanoma Family Facebook intervention or Healthy Lifestyle Facebook intervention works in improving skin examination in participants with melanoma and their families. Young Melanoma Family Facebook intervention or Healthy Lifestyle Facebook intervention may help improve total cutaneous examinations, skin self-examinations, and sun protection among first degree relatives of young onset participants and the participants themselves.

Recruitment Criteria

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Yes

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.


An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.


Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.

Trial ID:
NCT03677739

Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

Additional Details

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

  • I. To examine the efficacy of the Young Melanoma Family Facebook intervention versus the Healthy Lifestyle Facebook intervention on total cutaneous exam (primary outcome), skin self-exam frequency and comprehensiveness, and sun protection practices (secondary outcomes) of first degree relatives (FDRs) of young melanoma survivors.
SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:
  • I. To examine the efficacy of the Young Melanoma Family Facebook intervention on patients? skin self-exam frequency and comprehensiveness and sun protection habits.
  • II. To examine the mechanisms of intervention efficacy.
OUTLINE: PHASE I: Researchers refine content for the Facebook intervention condition and conduct usability testing. PHASE II: Participants are randomized to 1 of 2 arms. ARM I: Participants join a secret Young Melanoma Family Facebook Group and view post messages focusing on skin cancer for 12 weeks. ARM II: Participants join a secret Healthy Lifestyle Facebook Group and view post messages focusing on healthy lifestyle for 12 weeks. PHASE III: Dissemination planning. After completion of study, participants are followed up at 6 months.
