This trial studies how well increasing the dose of survivorship care planning improves care and outcomes in prostate cancer survivors receiving radiation therapy and androgen deprivation therapy. There is a need for coordinated care between the cancer care team with the primary care team. This is especially important for prostate cancer survivors who need routine cancer care follow-up with their radiation oncologist and also coordinated routine follow-up with their primary care provider (PCP). This is important because androgen deprivation therapy increases a patient's risk for developing diabetes, hypercholesterolemia, and cardiovascular events. Increasing the dose of survivorship may improve care and outcomes of cancer survivors than standard practices.
I. To determine if the experimental arm (increased doses of survivorship care planning [SCP]) has more patients who saw a primary care provider and had blood glucose and cholesterol checked in year 2 (13-24 months) after finishing radiation therapy (RT) as compared to the control arm.
I. To determine if patients who receive increased doses of SCP have lower cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk score at 2 years as compared to patients who receive a one-time SCP.
II. To determine if patients who receive increased doses of SCP have improved patient reported coordination and satisfaction with care with respect to their primary care provider (PCP) or cardiologist as compared to patients who receive a one-time SCP and whether health literacy modifies the effect of SCP use on patient-reported coordination of care and satisfaction with care with respect to their PCP or cardiologist.
III. To determine the number of patients eligible, but without a PCP/cardiologist.
IV. To describe the current practice related to SCP delivery and prostate cancer survivor monitoring in participating National Cancer Institute (NCI) Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) practices.
I. To determine if patients who receive increased doses of SCP have improved patient reported coordination and satisfaction with care with respect to their cancer specialist as compared to patients who receive a one-time SCP and whether health literacy modifies the effect of SCP use on patient-reported coordination of care and satisfaction with care with respect to their cancer specialist.
OUTLINE: Practices are randomized to 1 of 2 arms.
ARM A (STANDARD): Practices review a SCP with patients and send it to the PCP during the last week of RT.
ARM B (ENHANCED SCP): Practices review a treatment plan with patient and send it to the PCP at the beginning of RT. Practices also review a SCP as arm A.
After completion of study, patients are followed up periodically.
