HCC worked with the research team using stakeholder-driven methods to develop a dual format video/print-based intervention, offering patients upfront, realistic information about prognosis and palliative chemotherapy as part of the chemotherapy informed consent process. The resulting intervention was rated highly by advocates and oncologists, which stands in contrast to their reported dissatisfaction with existing chemotherapy educational materials.The final prototype video and booklet can be found at www.chemovideo.org (logon and password: FOLFOX).
