Advancing cancer care for 12-24 year olds

Psychosocial Assessment

Fact

“Adolescents and young adults with cancer often want to know, but are reluctant to ask about topics such as sexual health and substance use. Evidence suggests that if providers ask AYA patients about these behaviours in confidence, patients are more likely to engage with health professionals and feel they can disclose and discuss concerns with them”
