Cancer Survivorship Trials
|Recruiting||Cancer survivor||Not Applicable||
The Survivorship Clinic at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) provides a comprehensive evaluation for cancer survivors with a focus on patient education surrounding the potential long-term non-oncologic medical and psychosocial issues facing cancer survivors. Patients will undergo a risk-adapted history and physical examination and will receive a “Survivorship Care Plan”. This plan includes a detailed summary of their cancer treatment, actual and potential therapy-related complications, and evidence-based standards of care for follow-up. Copies of the Survivorship Care Plan will also be provided to the cancer survivor’s health care providers.
The purpose of this study is to provide evaluation of the health care services provided to patients treated through Survivorship Clinic at the SCCA. This assessment is important because it will inform the ongoing development and refinement of the clinical services provided to cancer survivors. Researchers hope to be able to measure changes in health status and practices as a result of the clinical evaluation, and more effectively assess patient health care utilization and satisfaction within the survivorship realm of care. This data will help to create an integrated body of knowledge about survivorship, and inform both clinical care and research initiatives.
Patients who are seen in the Survivorship Clinic at the SCCA will be asked to complete a questionnaire prior to their initial survivorship-focused clinic visit. These questionnaires ask participants about health care utilization and satisfaction with the health care they have received. Participants will then be asked to complete another survey approximately 12 months after their initial clinic visit.
All patients seen at the Survivorship Clinic at the SCCA are eligible to participate in this research study.
All cancer survivors are eligible to be seen in the Survivorship Clinic at the SCCA regardless of age, place of initial cancer treatment, or type of cancer treatment. Patients can be seen for a single-time consultation, referred for a specific concern or followed on a more continuous basis.
- Talk to your health care providers first before making decisions about your health care.
- Whether you are eligible for a research study depends on many things. There are specific requirements to be in research studies. These requirements are different for each study.
