We piloted a patient-reported screener in a clinic for survivors of childhood cancers to facilitate detection of late effects, psychosocial needs, and distress. The mean number of patient-reported survivorship concerns endorsed per patient was 3.2; most frequent were difficulties with body weight, sleep, work/school, and fertility. Few individuals reported clinically significant distress or fear of recurrence. Electronic health record data produced an average of 2.3 late effects. Administration of a brief screener was effective in identifying additional current medical and psychosocial care needs among adult survivors of childhood cancers in a survivorship clinic.
