Erin Elizabeth Hahn, PhD, MPH, on Hodgkin Lymphoma: Post-Treatment Services
2016 Cancer Survivorship Symposium
Erin Elizabeth Hahn, PhD, MPH, of Kaiser Permanente Southern California, discusses the use of recommended post-treatment services for adolescent and young adult Hodgkin lymphoma survivors (Abstract 107).
Kerri M. Winters-Stone, PhD, of Oregon Health and Science University, discusses the results of her study, which showed that, years after treatment, nearly half of women cancer survivors still have symptoms of chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy. The findings may inform rehabilitative programs to prevent falls and injuries (Abstract 130).
Dana Barnea, MD, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses data that suggest annual palpation of the thyroid is an adequate and safe means of screening childhood and young adult cancer survivors, a population at high risk for this type of cancer (Abstract 254).
Tim A. Ahles, PhD, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses “chemobrain” and what can be done to help patients cope with this symptom.
Christopher J. Recklitis, PhD, MPH, of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discusses these side effects and some practical approaches to managing them with educational, medical, behavioral, and lifestyle interventions.
Lewis E. Foxhall, MD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, summarizes this session in which presenters covered a range of issues, including the medical home, tools to facilitate communication with cancer survivors, EMRs, reimbursement, and coordinating care with primary care providers (Abstract 76 was presented in this session).
