Technology-based interventions are thought to be one of the innovative alternatives for improving the psychosocial health of adolescent survivors. This article outlines an example of technology-based psychosocial intervention for adolescent survivors of leukemia. This technology-based psychosocial support intervention consists of five separate modules related to personal development, coping skills, and a healthy lifestyle. intervention can be applied to adolescents (aged 12–18 years) who have completed leukemia treatment at least 2 years ago and are disease free. Psychosocial interventions are crucial to improving adolescent survivors' psychosocial well-being in long-term follow-up. It is thought that psychosocial interventions can be effective on survivors' self-efficacy, coping skills, and quality of life, and survivors will be satisfied with the program. Regarding the model of childhood cancer survivorship care, this intervention can be integrated into the follow-up program and guide pediatric oncology nurses in preparing support programs for adolescent survivors.
