The overall goal of this study is to facilitate care improvements for bladder cancer patients with locally advanced or metastatic disease by designing and evaluating a patient need assessment screening tool to be used, in the future, as standard screening measure. Adult individuals diagnosed with Stage 4 incurable locally advanced or metastatic bladder cancer will be included in this study and asked to participate in a focus group, complete a screening tool, or complete a survey. All data collected will be linked to a study ID number and HIPAA identifiers will not be linked to study data. Identifying information (ie: name, mrn, email, phone number) will be utilized for study recruitment and identifying eligible patients. Any disclosure of the human subjects' responses outside the research would not reasonably place the subjects at risk of criminal or civil liability or be damaging to the subjects' financial standing, employability, educational advancement, or reputation.


Inclusion Criteria:

- Patients are eligible to participate if they are diagnosed with Stage 4 incurable locally advanced or metastatic bladder cancer

- between 18 years and older (18-89 years)

- have initiated any systemic treatment for advanced urothelial carcinoma

Exclusion Criteria:
