Advancing cancer care for 12-24 year olds

Palliative Care

 

 

Fact

“Where curative therapy is no longer appropriate for a particular patient, it is essential that providers consider and discuss end-of-life care well before the need for it eventuates. A lack of conversation about end of life care can create a sense of isolation, fear, and anxiety in AYA patients. Evidence suggests that AYA cancer patients are comfortable in talking about these issues”
