Health Behaviors in Adolescent Survivors of Cancer or Similar Illnesses
This study proposes to explore cancer-risk behaviors and future behavioral intentions among
adolescent cancer survivors (i.e., 14-19 years old) and compare them to their "healthy"
peers using population-based normative data. Additionally, it seeks to determine the
significant theory-driven covariates related to adolescent survivors' health behaviors,
which will aid in the design of future behavioral interventions.
Observational Model: Case-Only, Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
To describe the patterns of cancer-risk behaviors for adolescent cancer survivors as compared to population-based normative data of "healthy" adolescents, and to describe relevant theory-driven covariates for adolescent cancer survivors.
