The goal of this research is to explore how a patient decision aid tool (website) given to patients prior to their survivorship care visits, may impact patient-provider communication about fertility and family-building after cancer; and assess the impact of using the tool on patient reported outcomes. The overall purpose of this research is to improve survivorship care by establishing a multi-disciplinary approach to managing cancer and fertility issues and prompt early referral to supportive and medical care resources.
