Need

Patients aged 15 to 39 years old at their initial diagnosis constitute the adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer survivorship population, which includes approximately 70,000 patients diagnosed each year. Although the incidence of invasive cancer in AYAs is lower than in younger children or older adults, the psychosocial needs of AYAs often exceed those seen in older adults. Many issues are the focus of active research, such as concurrently providing oncologic and primary care, appropriate disease surveillance, appropriate screening for therapy-related late effects and the need to provide psychologic and social support for patients returning to school, work and family life.

Intended Audience

This activity is designed for individuals who are involved in cancer treatment and education of cancer patients and their families: oncology physicians, primary care physicians, oncology nurses, nurse practitioners, clinical research associates, health educators, social workers, psychologists, chaplains and other interested health care professionals involved in cancer care. Patients, caregivers and community members are also encouraged to attend.

Elements of Competence

This continuing education (CE) activity has been designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties areas of patient care and procedural skills, medical knowledge and professionalism. This activity also focuses on the interprofessional competencies of roles and responsibilities and teams/teamwork.

Learning Objectives

This activity is designed to educate physicians, nurses and other health care providers about challenges and issues affecting young adults with cancer. Learning objectives for this conference include:

  • Recognize the impact of cancer on a young adult patient through a personal story.
  • Examine trends in adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancers over the past decade and understand why AYA cancer patients continue to be a "special" population.
  • Identify late and long-term health considerations for young cancer survivors and discuss management strategies to implement.
  • Review the current literature on cancer and exercise and how it supports the benefits of exercise during a cancer journey and discuss how to use exercise principles to help patients begin and guide a program at which they can succeed.
  • Outline psychosocial challenges that young adult cancer patients face as they transition to survivorship care and define strategies and supportive care resources to help them adjust to life after cancer treatment.
  • Explain how cancer diagnosis and treatment can alter the sexual functioning and sexual lives of young adult cancer survivors and learn how to initiate discussions about sexuality and sexual health concerns of young adult cancer survivors.
  • Summarize male and female fertility and fertility preservation options before, during and after treatment and review current data on fertility preservation.
  • Explain and describe management of chronic pain in the young adult cancer population.
  • Identify resources to best support kids, teens and their parents through a cancer diagnosis and whatever comes after.
  • Differentiate types of genetic tests and understand the role of genetic counselors in facilitating patient care.
  • Define and clarify legacy work, including dignity therapy.
  • Explain what forgiveness is and is not, and understand peer-reviewed research on forgiveness therapy as a therapeutically verified treatment.
