Cancer-Related Cognitive Impairment:
More Than a Side Effect of Chemotherapy
Cancer can impair a patient’s ability to think and to remember. While this condition is often called ‘chemo-brain,’ cognitive impairment stemming from cancer affects patients who might not have had either chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Dr. Nakamura will review our latest understandings of this condition.
- Identify causes of cancer-related cognitive impairment.
- Discuss morbidity associated with cancer-related cognitive impairment.
- Describe evidence-based interventions for cancer-related cognitive impairment.
