Virtual Peer-to-peer (VP2P) Support Mentoring for Adolescents With Cancer: A Pilot Pragmatic Randomized Controlled Trial
The overall aim of this research program is to develop and examine the impact of a Cancer
virtual peer-to-peer (VP2P) Support Program on health-related quality of life (HRQL) in
adolescents with cancer (AWC). In the current proposal, the feasibility of trialing the
Skype-based VP2P program providing peer-support from mentors and the magnitude of program
effect estimates will be evaluated in a pilot randomized control trial (RCT). This pilot RCT
will enable us to refine the program and determine the appropriate sample size for a future
large-scale RCT, which will compare the effectiveness of VP2P to a waitlist control group at
a major Children's Oncology Group- affiliated centres in Canada and the United States.
