Full TitleINSPIRE-AYA: A Multicenter INteractive Survivorship Program to Improve Healthcare REsources for Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Cancer Survivors (Fred Hutch IRB)
In this study, researchers are assessing a new wellness tool for survivors of adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancers. The INSPIRE program is a mobile app or online tool, with options for social media and phone calls, designed to help survivors access information and support for their physical and emotional wellness. The INSPIRE program has specific tools for:
- Health maintenance and monitoring (for survivors and their doctors)
- Management of stress and worries and promotion of quality of life
- Connection with other AYAs in private social media groups for those who desire
Participants in this study will be randomly assigned to receive either:
- Access to the INSPIRE program, or
- Access to a special online site with links to resources for survivors, followed by access to the INSPIRE program after 12 months.
