2021 Pediatric Grand Rounds | Application of Neuropsychology to Pediatric Oncology

Duarte, CA US
October 14, 2021

Cancer continues to be life-threatening, which, for patients with poor outcomes, novel therapies are being offered, and for patients who have better outcomes, long-term side effects of toxic therapies are meaningful side effects of cancer therapy.  For novel therapies, including immune checkpoint inhibitors and brain tumor CAR T-cell therapy, characterization of acute neurocognitive outcomes has clinical significance.  For therapies that have been utilized for decades, long-term outcomes from these therapies are worth characterizing and integrating into clinical care. The purpose of this lecture is to update pediatric oncologists on the impact of cancer and its therapy on neurocognitive outcome among pediatric patients. 

Target Audience

City of Hope Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Physicians, Advance Practice Practitioners, City of Hope staff and research teams.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify short-term side effects of novel therapies and long-term side effects of standard therapies.
  • Distinguish appropriate neurocognitive work-up and evaluation for pediatric oncology patients.
  • Integrate strategies to mitigate neurocognitive toxicities in clinical care.
  • Examine possible avenues to collaborate on future trials.
  • Outline the various types of cultural diversities (gender, age, race, religion, culture, etc.) that relate to demographics, diagnosis and treatment.
