2018年6月1日(芝加哥)芝加哥AYA肿瘤学研讨会:青少年与青年白血病患者的治疗突破

日期: 2018-04-17
媒体:

As the number of young people with cancer continues to grow, we want to help equip other physicians and clinicians with the ability to comprehend that young adults with cancer have different challenges than other populations with cancer. Many challenges affect diagnosis and treatment. A young adult may not act on symptoms of cancer because it is uncommon. Some symptoms may be similar to the symptoms on noncancerous conditions. Young adults may not have health insurance, or they have limited financial resources to pay for cancer treatment even if they have health insurance. Many young adults have no previous experience receiving care for a complex diagnosis. As such, they may have trouble navigating the health care system. Young adults also have a wide range of emotional, physical, and social concerns, including relationships, sexuality, parenthood, education, and employment. This activity will directly address those challenges and give the participants strategies to over come them.
