Video Runtime: 37 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 33 Minutes

Adolescents and young adults (AYAs) diagnosed with cancer have unique needs that are often not identified or addressed. The AYA population is often poorly defined as they do not fall within the definitions of the pediatric and older adult cancer populations. Because of this lack of understanding of who AYAs with cancer are, their needs are similarly misunderstood and subsequently not addressed. These needs are multidimensional and require a team approach. This educational module aims to concisely define who the AYA with cancer is, identify the unique needs and concerns facing this population, and offer strategies to address these unique concerns.

Video Runtime: 67 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 33 Minutes

Adolescents and young adults (AYAs) diagnosed with cancer require rehabilitation services to effectively manage treatment side effects. They also require enhanced long-term surveillance. However, engaging AYAs in rehab services is challenging, resulting in poorer outcomes for AYAs. AYAs face unique barriers to rehabilitation, as well as other crucial services to enhance their quality of life, that are different from those of pediatric and older adult populations. In this module, the AYA population will be defined and the more common cancers in this age group will be identified. The rehabilitation needs of AYAs with cancer will be reviewed. The potential barriers for AYAs to access rehabilitation will be extensively examined, and tangible steps to address these barriers will be proposed through interactive discussion.

The impact of these adverse effects on the normal gross motor and psychosocial development of children with cancer will be discussed. Assessment of the impact on the physical development of children with cancer will be reviewed. Finally, rehabilitation interventions to mitigate the short-term, long-term, and late effects of cancer treatment will be reviewed.
