RATIONALE: An orientation and patient education program and telephone counseling may help improve the quality of life in patients with peritoneal surface malignancies.
I. Assess feasibility of instituting an orientation program, brief follow up care and phone calls in this patient population.
I. Reduce pre-treatment distress and anxiety. II. Improve pre-treatment self-efficacy. III. Provide educational material delivered by the SRB. IV. Improve overall post-operative QOL ratings at 3 months, relative to discharge.
Patients and their caregiver(s) receive a hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) orientation with a Survivorship Navigator (SN) over 90 minutes following their initial surgical consult. Patients then receive telephone calls over 20-30 minutes from the SN once weekly for 3 weeks prior to HIPEC. . After HIPEC, patients meet with the SN for 20-30 minutes to discuss adjustments and adaptation to the surgery and hospitalization 3-4 days post-HIPEC, biweekly for two weeks, and weekly thereafter until hospital discharge. After hospital discharge, patients receive telephone calls from the SN twice monthly for 1 month.
