Cancer-Related Cognitive Impairment:
More Than a Side Effect of Chemotherapy

 

Lecture Description

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.

Lecture Objectives:
  • Identify causes of cancer-related cognitive impairment.
  • Discuss morbidity associated with cancer-related cognitive impairment.
  • Describe evidence-based interventions for cancer-related cognitive impairment.
