|Actual Study Completion Date :||July 29, 2022|
Participants complete a Current Medical Conditions Form, the CogState web-based cognitive assessment, and a Self-Report Questionnaire administration over 45-60 minutes containing measures of work ability and other work-related measures, cognitive, physical, and psychosocial symptoms, and characteristics of workplace environment. Self-report measures of individual and family characteristics, resources, and demands are also included.
Procedure: Cognitive Assessment
Other: Questionnaire Administration
Complete Self-Report Questionnaire
- Percentage of Participants Currently Employed [ Time Frame: Baseline ]Labor force participation will be summarized as employed, unemployed (not working, but looking for work), and not in labor force (not employed and not looking for work or active duty military).
- Occupation Status [ Time Frame: Baseline ]This categorical work-related outcomes will be described using frequencies. Occupational status will be summarized using the 2010 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system: managerial and professional) (SOC major groups 11-29), (support, retail, and service (SOC major groups 31-43), and construction, production and transportation (SOC major groups 45-53).
- Educational Attainment [ Time Frame: Baseline ]This categorical work-related outcomes will be described using frequencies. Educational attainment will be classified as using the Current Population Survey classifications so that we can compare rates to US Benchmarks. The classifications are the following: Less than 1st grade, 1-4th grade, 5th-6th grade, 7-8th grade, 9th grade, 10th grade, 11th grade, 12 grade (no diploma), high school diploma or equivalent, some college (no degree), associate degree in college - occupational/vocational program, associate degree in college - academic program, Bachelor's degree, Master's degree, Professional School Degree (MD, DDS, DVM, JD etc.), Doctorate Degree.
- Financial Toxicity [ Time Frame: Baseline ]The Comprehensive Score for Financial Toxicity (COST) is a self-report measure of financial distress experienced in response to cancer and its treatment. It ranges from 0-44, with higher scores associated with greater financial toxicity.
- Work ability (measured by Work Ability Index global score) [ Time Frame: Baseline ]The Work Ability Index score ranges from 7 to 49, with higher scores indicating better workability; the Work Ability Index (WAI) global score is an item within the Work Ability Index which measures work ability from 0 to 10, with 10 representing the best work ability.
- Work ability (measured by Work Ability Index) [ Time Frame: Baseline ]The Work Ability Index (WAI) score ranges from 7 to 49, with higher scores indicating better workability; the Work Ability Index (WAI) global score is an item within the Work Ability Index which measures work ability from 0 to 10, with 10 representing the best work ability.
- Work ability measured by Work Limitations Questionnaire score [ Time Frame: Baseline ]The Work Limitations Questionnaire (WLQ) is a self-report measure of impact of chronic health conditions/treatment on job performance. Subscales: (1) time demands; (2) physical demands; (3) mental-interpersonal demands; and (4) output demands. Scale scores range from 0 (limited none of the time) to 100 (limited all of the time) with 0 being better.
