Cancer at the Two Ends of the Life Span

Adolescents and young adults (AYAs) with cancer have unique needs that must be addressed to ensure that optimal care is provided as they move through the diagnostic, treatment, and survivorship trajectory. How can you provide care in a culturally-appropriate way for AYAs? How do you deal with the developmental demands of patients who are "too young" to have cancer and who have little to no experience of illness due to their age? At the other end of the spectrum, how can you provide exemplary care to geriatric patients with a number of age-related comorbidities? How can you involve their adult children who have their own age-related illnesses, often including their own cancer diagnoses? Listen as two experts in these diverse populations will educate, challenge, and identify gaps in knowledge and existing evidence.

Please note: Preconference sessions require separate registration.

Mara Mogensen Flaherty Memorial Lectureship: The Elephant in the Room: Tackling Tough Topics With Your Patients
Do you often find yourself reluctant to ask a patient a question because you are afraid to offend them or don't know the right words to use? What are the elephants in the room for you as a professional? Do you hesitate before raising the topic of sexuality, end-of-life issues, obesity, or treatment-related infertility? Do you ever wish you had a toolkit that could help you deal with sensitive issues? Get encouraged and inspired to face sensitive topics head on. Using clinical examples, you’ll see how you can confront the elephant in the room and emerge stronger and bolder.

The Mara Mogensen Flaherty Lecture is generously supported by the ONS Foundation.

Please note: Due to a scheduling change, Anne Katz will be presenting the Mara Mogensen Flaherty Memorial Lectureship in place of Theresa Brown.
