Increasing the Dose of Survivorship Care Planning in Improving Care and Outcomes in Prostate Cancer Survivors Receiving Androgen Deprivation Therapy (NRG-CC007CD)

Increasing the Dose of Survivorship Care Planning in Prostate Cancer Survivors Who Receive Androgen Deprivation Therapy


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.

Key Inclusion Criteria

For a patient to be eligible for participation in this study, all of the following criteria must apply.

  • All institutions participating in a practice are NCORP components or sub-components
  • Have a mechanism for delivering SCPs to prostate cancer patients. Practices that currently provide SCPs are eligible but for this trial will need to use the study-provided SCP template.
  • See at least 10 patients meeting eligibility criteria per year.
  • Completion and submission of the NRG-CC007CD Letter of Intent (LOI) (posted on the Cancer Trials Support Unit [CTSU] website) by each practice to
  • Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval
  • Each principal investigator (PI) and research assistant (RA) at a NCORP practice must complete NRG-CC007CD SCP training. A training certificate will need to be completed and uploaded to the CTSU Regulatory Submission Portal. (See NRG-CC007CD Training Memo and Slides; located on the CTSU website).
  • Any site participating within a practice that is participating on Wake Forest study, WF-1804CD is not able to participate in this trial in order to not impact the fidelity of either trial. PATIENT ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA – PRIOR TO REGISTRATION (STEP 1)
  • The participant must be able to complete required questionnaires in English
  • The participant must have a diagnosis of prostate adenocarcinoma that will be treated with RT plus androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) with curative intent. Both definitive RT (intact prostate) and postprostatectomy RT patients are eligible
    • The ADT must be planned for at least 4 months and must include luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) agonist or LHRH antagonist ‚ó¶ADT may have started for no more than 120 days before registration
  • The participant must have a primary care provider and/or cardiologist or plan to obtain one
  • Comorbidities assessed at study entry using the Adult Comorbidity Evaluation (ACE)-27 instrument (located on the CTSU website)
  • Completion and submission of the Brief Health Literacy Screen, Coordination of Care, and Patient Satisfaction with Care within 42 days prior to registration
  • The patient or a legally authorized representative must provide study-specific informed consent prior to study entry
