DescriptionUndertreated patient symptoms and resulting acute care use require approaches that improve symptom-burden. Previously a a lay health worker (LHW)-led symptom screening intervention was developed for patients with advanced cancer. This intervention will be expanded to all patients with cancer and the LHW will be trained to refer patients to palliative care and behavioral health. This intervention will evaluate the effect on symptom-burden, survival, healthcare use, and total costs.
