Geriatric Evaluation and Management With Survivorship Health Education (GEMS) for Older Survivors of Cancer

This phase III trial compares the effect of geriatric evaluation and management with
survivorship health education (GEMS) to usual care on patient-reported physical function in
older survivors of cancer. Survivorship care for older adults of cancer usually consists of
getting advice from their doctor. This advice may include how to do their daily activities,
so they are less tired or how to manage multiple diseases, or long-term side effects from
treatment. GEMS may help improve the physical ability to perform activities of daily living,
mental well-being, and memory in older survivors of cancer after chemotherapy. This study may
help doctors learn if including GEMS in their practices improves physical, mental and memory
functions in their patients. The study may also help to understand how such care affects
cancer patients and their caregivers' quality of life.
