Trial Information

Development of a Computer Assisted Survivor Screening For Adult Survivors of Childhood Cancer

To determine feasibility of using the Computer Assisted Survivor Screening (CASS) as a
routine screening measure for the survivor population. Specifically, to determine patient
acceptance, time to completion, and burden associated with the CASS. To examine the
potential utility of the CASS as a routine screening measure in the survivor population. To
validate the CASS against the SCL-90-R screening measure. Calculate the
sensitivity,specificity, positive and negative predictive values, diagnostic agreement and
ROC curve of the CASS compared to the SCL-90. Determine the optimal cut-off scores to
optimize agreement between the CASS and the SCL-90.

Inclusion Criteria:

Exclusion Criteria:

- History of a central nervous system tumor

- A sensory or cognitive impairment that would interfere with completion of the survey
