Pediatric Adolescent and Young Adults (AYA) Survivorship Conference

October 16, 2020

Due to the incredible success rates in treating pediatric oncology patients, one in a thousand young adults in the United States is a survivor of childhood cancer.  The therapies that were required to kill the cancer can also damage normal tissue.  These children are often left with side effects of the cancer and its treatments such as learning problems, fertility issues, disturbances of growth and pubertal development, and heart and lung damage.  Children who have had cancer need lifelong care to monitor for and treat late effects of cancer therapies, recurrences (including secondary cancers), and to address the unique psychosocial, nutritional, rehabilitation, and other needs that may arise years after treatment ends. The quality of life for pediatric cancer survivors is tremendously improved through access to comprehensive care. And yet, the vast majority of survivors of all ages continue to suffer from limited access to medical, psychosocial, and supportive care they need following cancer treatment, especially adolescents and young adults. Although research on some survivorship issues appears to be increasing, research inclusive of adolescents and young adults diagnosed with cancer continues to lag far behind other age groups. Adolescent and young adult specific healthcare and other survivorship-related needs are poorly understood and poorly served.  Providers need reliable, innovative, and up-to-date information sources to stay abreast of research and care advances, including technology, relevant to their individual patient’s situations. Providers need to know the best tools available to educate and serve their patients. Dissemination research still is in its infancy, but its utility for reaching public, patients and health provider audiences with new cancer knowledge and interventions is highly appreciated.

Target Audience

  • Pediatricians
  • Family Practice Physicians 
  • Nurse Practitioners
  • Physician Assistants

Learning Objectives

Participants who engage in this educational intervention will be able to:

  • Explain techniques of self-management for cancer survivors.
  • Outline the contents of a telemedicine and how it enhances survivors’ care for patients with social determinants. 
  • Analyze the importance of fertility education and ways to address fertility issues through best practice consult approach via electronic medical records.  
  • List benefits of exercises and diet during cancer treatment and identity the best tools to promote healthy choices for cancer survivors.
  • Explain virtual reality and best practices to support patient’s psychosocial needs via virtual reality.  
  • Discuss utilization of electronic medical records to enhance and ensure appropriate transition survivorship care for medical providers.
