Welcome to the CHIIP Study!
Communicating Health Information and Improving Coordination with Primary Care
What is the CHIIP Study?
The CHIIP Study will recruit participants from a group of childhood cancer survivors who are enrolled in the Long-Term Follow-Up (LTFU) Study being conducted by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The CHIIP Study is for LTFU Study participants who may be more likely to experience heart problems because of their cancer treatment. We want to figure out how common high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, and high blood sugar are among LTFU Study participants.
This study is being done by the LTFU Study team at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and researchers from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. It is being funded by the US National Cancer Institute (NCI).
What will be asked of CHIIP Study Participants?
These visits and tests performed for the CHIIP Study will be free of charge. Participants and their primary doctors will receive copies of the results. Participants will also receive honoraria for participating.
What’s in it for Study Participants?
Participants will have some basic health measurements done for free, including height, weight, blood pressure, and blood levels of cholesterol and sugar. The participant and their primary care provider will receive a copy of all these test results. We hope the information we gather will provide future benefits for other people who were treated for cancer as children.
