This trial studies how well an interactive survivorship program works in improving healthcare resources in adolescent and young adult cancer survivors. By improving access to survivorship resources, health literacy, self-management skills, and support, an interactive survivorship program may help to improve adherence to adolescent and young adult healthcare guidelines and reduce cancer-related distress.

Official Title

INSPIRE-AYA: A Multicenter Interactive Survivorship Program to Improve Healthcare Resources for Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Cancer Survivors


OUTLINE: Patients who have one or more elevated distress or low cardiometabolic or cancer health care adherence are randomized to Arm I or II.

ARM I (INTERVENTION): Patients receive a personalized Survivorship Care Plan (SCP) and use the Interactive Survivorship Program to Improve Healthcare Resources (INSPIRE) mobile application. Patients may receive telehealth stepped care after 1 month.

ARM II (CONTROL): Patients receive access to a study-specific control website that has annotated links to existing resources for adolescent and young adult (AYA) survivors. After 12 months, patients receive a personalized SCP and have access to the digital INSPIRE intervention program without telehealth calls.
