|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Anxiety Disorder Cancer Survivor Fatigue Leukemia Long-term Effects Secondary to Cancer Therapy in Adults Lymphoma Lymphoproliferative Disorder Pain Psychosocial Effects of Cancer and Its Treatment Small Intestine Cancer||Behavioral: telephone-based intervention Other: questionnaire administration Procedure: assessment of therapy complications Procedure: fatigue assessment and management Procedure: psychosocial assessment and care Procedure: quality-of-life assessment||Phase 1|
- To collect preliminary data to determine the extent to which there is impairment in quality of life of young adult survivors of hematologic malignancies.
- To identify the most common areas of concern in these survivors.
- To explore patterns of quality-of-life impairment associated with age, gender, and type of treatment (transplant vs non-transplant) in these survivors.
OUTLINE: Patients are assessed in a telephone interview using a brief demographic and clinical data form. Patients then undergo quality-of-life assessment by the Cancer Patient/Cancer Survivor Version questionnaire via telephone.
