Psychosocial Challenges for the Young Adult With Cancer—How Can We Help?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Young adults with cancer have traditionally fallen between the two worlds of pediatric and adult cancer. They are not children with cancer, yet they aren’t adults either. They are instead a unique population with developmental tasks and life experiences that differ from those in other life stages. Dive into the psychosocial needs of these patients, and explore how you can help them overcome the challenges of cancer at this stage of life.


  1. Identifies the unique challenges of having cancer as a young adult.
  2. Describe what we know about psychosocial needs of young adults with cancer.
  3. Explain how to help the young adult cope with the psychosocial changes after treatment.
