Refinement of an Assessment Tool to Identify Cancer Survivorship Needs
The purpose of this study is to create an easy to navigate needs assessment tool specifically designed for cancer survivors. Needs assessment tools such as the Distress Thermometer have been created to identify areas in which patients need additional assistance. Currently the Distress Thermometer (DT) has been widely praised as a great screening tool in cancer patients actively receiving treatment; however this tool does not effectively address the needs of cancer survivors. Participants in this research will be asked to complete a questionnaire about their demographic information. This questionnaire is expected to take about 10-15 minutes to complete. They may also be asked to participate in focus group sessions or one on one interviews where open ended questions regarding the tool that the researchers are trying to develop. The interviews and focus group sessions are expected to last about one hour. The interviews and/or focus group sessions will occur at the same visit as their questionnaire.
Aim 1: To revise the CNAT-CS based on input from focus groups of cancer survivors. Aim 2: To refine with the CNAT-CS through the use of cognitive interviews with cancer survivors.
