This randomized clinical trial studies survivorship care in reducing symptoms in young adult cancer survivors. Survivorship care programs that identify the needs of young adult cancer survivors and ways to support them through the years after treatment may help reduce symptoms, such as pain, fatigue, sleep disturbance, depression, and distress, in young adult cancer survivors.
I. To test the impact of providing the essential elements of survivorship care on survivorship outcomes as indicated by reduction in symptoms (pain, fatigue, sleep disturbance, depression, distress) in young adult cancer survivors diagnosed with cancer between the ages of 18 and 39 years when compared with usual care.
I. To improve confidence in survivorship knowledge and promote healthy lifestyle behaviors.
II. To provide evidence on barriers, needs and care preferences that will support long term follow-up recommendations for this population.
OUTLINE: Participants categorized as high-need are randomized to 1 of 2 arms. Participants categorized as low-need are assigned to Arm I.
ARM I: Participants receive usual care. After 12 months, participants may receive a survivorship clinic visit and boosters as in Arm II.
ARM II: Participants attend a survivorship clinic visit that includes care plans, screening recommendations, physician coordination, health promotion education, symptom management and palliative care, late effects education, psychosocial and medical assessments, and referrals for services and care as appropriate. Participants also receive phone-based survivorship boosters over approximately 15-30 minutes at 4-6 weeks and 12-14 weeks after the initial clinic visit.
After completion of study, participants are followed up at 6 and 12 months.

A quality-of-life scale developed in the United States in 1972 as a measure of health status or dysfunction generated by a disease. It is a behaviorally based questionnaire for patients and addresses activities such as sleep and rest, mobility, recreation, home management, emotional behavior, social interaction, and the like. It measures the patient's perceived health status and is sensitive enough to detect changes or differences in health status occurring over time or between groups.
