Patient-centered approach to reducing stomach cancer disparities among New York City Chinese American Communities

Brief description of study

The goal of this study is to assess the efficacy, adoption, and impact of an integrated intervention to improve adherence to recommended stomach cancer prevention guidelines (H. pylori test-and-treat) for at-risk Chinese Americans in NYC. The integrated multifaceted theory-based intervention involves: 1) a health systems-level intervention using electronic health record (EHR)-based tools to facilitate H. pylori test-and-treat strategies; and 2) a community-engaged culturally and linguistically adapted Community Health Worker (CHW)-led patient navigation program we are currently pilot testing for feasibility and acceptability. Using a 2-arm randomized controlled trial (RCT) design, we will enroll Chinese American patients across NYC health care facilities.
