Overview

The overall aim of this research project is to assess the feasibility and performance of neuropsychological and psychological screening measures completed by adolescents and young adults (AYA), and adults, who receive care at the Reid R. Sacco AYA Cancer Clinic or the Adult Cancer Survivorship Clinic, both at Tufts MC. The AYA Clinic provides cancer survivorship care to individuals between the ages of 18-39 years, while the Adult Clinic serves survivors ages >40. Two screening measures will be assessed: (1) the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MOCA), a screener for mild cognitive impairment1 and (2) the Brief Symptom Inventory-18 (BSI), a screener for psychological distress.2 The results from these well-validated screeners will guide future care for these participants at Tufts MC and beyond.
