Integrated Actionable Aging Assessment for Cancer Patients Pilot AGING ASSESSMENT

What's the purpose of this trial?

Aging is the greatest risk factor for cancer incidence and mortality. Geriatric screening is recommended to help with treatment discussions, inform intensity of treatment, and identify supportive care needs. Despite a strong evidence base, geriatric assessments are not implemented routinely in oncologic clinics. Similarly, important information on social determinants of health, mental health, and health behaviors are inconsistently assessed, and almost never in an integrated fashion. In an effort to support clinicians delivering the recommended goal-concordant care, the investigators will integrate assessment of geriatric issues, health behaviors, mental health, and social determinants of health into an efficient, actionable contextual assessment system for older cancer patients called Integrated Aging Assessment for Action for Cancer Patients (IA3-CP). The investigators will use D\&I strategies including co-creation engagement approaches and form-function methods to develop workflow processes that feasibly integrate the IA3-CP into usual initial assessment with the oncology team. Our objective is to develop and conduct a randomized pilot of the IA3-CP system and hypothesize that our results will show it can be implemented consistently, acted on, improve quality of care, and enhance patient-provider interactions.
