Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Survivorship in Oncology: Cancer Related Cognitive Impairment and Opportunities for Intervention
Underassessment of cognitive functioning in adolescent and young adult (AYA) patients is an underlying problem. Current practice does not routinely address the issue of patients cognitive functioning in this group. Ideal practice would be to implement a model including clinical surveillance, neurocognitive screening, and neuropsychological assessment to identify and intervene with these issues. This gap may exist because of a lack of education regarding cognitive functioning in AYAs in the field and lack of awareness about how to address these concerns among medical staff.
Physicians, psychologists, nurses, social workers, rehabilitation professionals.
- Identify several of the factors that contribute to cancer related cognitive impairment.

- Identify participants in the proposed clinical pathway for implementing guidelines related to cognitive functioning.
- Discuss possible barriers and biases which may impact patient care (i.e., race, ethnicity, language, gender identity/orientation, age, socioeconomic status, attitudes, feelings, or other characteristics).
