I am a postdoc working with James Landay. My field is Human-Computer Interaction, and my work lies at the intersection of interaction design, inclusivity, and artificial intelligence. I study the needs of marginalized groups who may particularly benefit from or be harmed by the outcomes of technology design decisions that affect us all. In addition, I employ my design skills to generate and advocate for more-inclusive design alternatives.

  • The association between perioperative frailty and ability to complete a web-based geriatric assessment among older adults with cancer. European journal of surgical oncology : the journal of the European Society of Surgical Oncology and the British Association of Surgical Oncology Cuadra, A., Tin, A. L., Moffat, G. T., Alexander, K., Downey, R. J., Korc-Grodzicki, B., Vickers, A. J., Shahrokni, A. 2022


    The aim of this study was to assess the degree to which patient frailty is associated with both need for assistance and time required to complete the eRFA, a web-based GA tool.We retrospectively identified patients who underwent surgery for cancer from 2015 to 2020, had a hospital length of stay ≥1 day, and completed the eRFA before surgery. Frailty was assessed using two methods: the MSK-FI (score 0-11) and the AGD (score 0-13). Time to complete the eRFA was automatically recorded by a web-based tool; assistance with eRFA completion was self-reported by the patient.In total, 3456 patients were included (median age, 78 years). Overall, 58% of surveys were completed without assistance, 30% were completed with assistance, and 12% were completed by someone other than the patient. Younger age (median age: without assistance, 77 years; with assistance, 80 years; completed by someone else, 80 years) and lower frailty score (median AGD: 4, 6, and 8, respectively; median MSK-FI: 2, 3, and 3, respectively) were associated with independency (all p < 0.001). Higher frailty score was associated with longer time to complete the eRFA (all nonlinear association p < 0.001).Frail patients are more likely to benefit from completion of GA to determine appropriate treatment. Given that not all cancer patients have a caregiver who can assist completing a digital questionnaire, innovative solutions are needed to help frail patients complete the eRFA without assistance.
