Health Communications Collaboration with Tailored Interventions

The Health Communications Shared Resource at the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center provides communications services for research studies requiring targeted and tailored interventions that inform health decisions. Our dedicated team helps research investigators across a range of services, including:

  • Optimizing trial recruitment
  • Adherence to protocols
  • Behavioral interventions for investigators conducting:
    • Cancer prevention
    • Cancer control
    • Cancer care delivery research

We first assess individual characteristics relevant to a behavior and then use algorithms that consider the assessment data to generate messages relevant to the specific needs of each user. Through this methodical approach, our team is able to provide individual feedback that delivers these messages to each user in a clear format.
