The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer is pleased to share Adolescents and Young Adults with Cancer: A System Performance Report. This is the first time national data on the entire continuum of cancer control in adolescents and young adults have been reported.
Building on existing knowledge about cancer in this unique population, key findings include:
- physical, emotional and practical needs during and after cancer treatment
- challenges in oncofertility and resource availability to address fertility issues
- gaps in current research funding and availability of clinical trials
- more data required to better understand the needs of this group
We would like to acknowledge the Canadian Task Force on Adolescents and Young Adults with Cancer for their important contributions to this report.
