Description

Summary

The researchers want to find out if older adults receiving a survivorship care plan followed by a geriatric assessment visit improves quality of life and satisfaction with care compared to receiving only a survivorship care plan for older adults who have completed chemotherapy for cancer treatment.

Details

This study is a pilot randomized trial to examine whether a geriatric assessment-enhanced survivorship care plan improves satisfaction, knowledge and health-related quality of life compared to standard survivorship care plans among older adults who have completed curative chemotherapy for cancer. The investigator's hypothesis is that older adults who receive a geriatric assessment-enhanced survivorship care plan will report improved satisfaction with care, health-related quality of life, and knowledge and preparedness for survivorship care needs.
