Further study details as provided by Vanderbilt University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Knowledge gained by attending a multispecialty Survivorship Clinic which will be measured by comparison of self report with medical record data in both cross-sectional and longitudinal approach. [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    In addition to data from patient interviews, a review of medical records will include general patient demographic data as well as data regarding cancer diagnosis, treatment and ongoing follow-up care.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Characterizing how the initial consultation in a specialized clinic impacts childhood cancer survivors' knowledge of their cancer diagnosis, treatment, and risk of late effects by comparing patient's understanding among 3 sampled timepoints. [ Time Frame: pre-clinic and a post-clinic interviews at 1 and 3 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • An analysis of differences in relative levels of recommended screening for late effects that childhood cancer survivors have received based on the type of their long-term follow-up care comparing medical records against Survivorship Care Plan. [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Scored responses will allow for quantitative analysis of differences within and between the cohorts of patients

  • A qualitative evaluation of program feedback will serve to improve the care provided in the REACH for Survivorship clinic [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    This data will be evaluated qualitatively for trends.
