Addressing Cognitive Dysfunction
in Patients with Cancer

 

Lecture Description

Cancer and cancer treatments can affect patient’s memory, concentration, and other aspects of cognition. While this condition is often called ‘chemo-brain,’ cognitive dysfunction can be due to many factors in patients with cancer. Dr. Nakamura will review our latest understandings of this condition.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify causes of cancer-related cognitive dysfunction
  • Describe the impact of cognitive problems in cancer patients on quality of life and medical outcomes
  • Recognize available treatments for patients with cancer experiencing cognitive dysfunction
