This research trial studies the use of clinical practice guidelines by pediatric oncology healthcare providers in order to identify, understand, and overcome barriers to them. The treatments for childhood cancers are intense and result in a high rate of symptoms which require support by healthcare providers. By reviewing patients' medical chart records, meeting in focus groups and in one-on-one interviews, healthcare providers may improve how clinical practice guidelines are used to support children undergoing cancer treatment.

This randomized phase III trial studies how well doxorubicin hydrochloride and cyclophosphamide followed by paclitaxel with or without carboplatin work in treating patients with triple-negative breast cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin hydrochloride, cyclophosphamide, paclitaxel, and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not yet known whether doxorubicin hydrochloride and cyclophosphamide is more effective when followed by paclitaxel alone or paclitaxel and carboplatin in treating triple-negative breast cancer.

Methods: Double blinded, randomized controlled trial with 1:1 allocation of mifepristone or placebo at initiation of induction of labor for fetal demise 20 weeks estimated gestational age or greater. Hypothesis: Mifepristone will expedite time to delivery of fetus among demise patients, when compared to placebo, and in conjunction with other pharmacologic methods for induction of labor. Expected outcomes: The addition of a progesterone receptor modulator will expedite time to delivery of the fetus and ultimately improve the experience associated with induction of labor for fetal demise.

This randomized clinical trial studies a palliative care program in improving the quality of life of patients with high-risk gynecologic malignancies that is original or first tumor in the body (primary) or has come back (recurrent). Palliative care is care given to patients and their families facing the problems associated with life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual. Studying a palliative care program may help doctors learn more about patients quality of life, use of healthcare services, and the relief of pain.
