Purpose:

This trial studies how well comprehensive nutritional geriatric assessments work in identifying malnutrition in older cancer participants. Comprehensive nutritional geriatric assessments may help doctors learn about ways to check for malnutrition (loss of weight/appetite that may result in health problems) that is due to cancer or cancer treatment.


Study summary:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To evaluate whether nutritional status, as determined by each of 4 screening tools (Mini Nutritional Assessment [MNA], weight loss, body mass index [BMI], and lean muscle mass), correlates with 6-month and 12-month mortality in older cancer patients after geriatric assessment, after adjusting for covariates. II. To evaluate whether nutritional status, as determined by each of by 4 screening tools (MNA, weight loss, BMI, and lean muscle mass) correlates with 6-month and 12-month unplanned hospitalization in older cancer patients who undergo geriatric assessment, after adjusting for covariates. III. To evaluate whether nutritional status, as determined by each of 4 screening tools (MNA, weight loss, BMI, and lean muscle mass) correlates with 6-month and 12-month hospital readmissions in older cancer patients who undergo geriatric assessment, after adjusting for covariates. OUTLINE: Participants undergo nutritional geriatric assessment over 15 minutes in person or on the phone every 3 months for 12 months.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - With hematologic and solid tumor cancers. - Undergo a comprehensive geriatric assessment by a geriatrician. Exclusion Criteria: - Unable or unwilling to sign consent form. - Life expectancy under 6 months.
