Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Objective: To provide an overview of cognitive rehabilitation approaches for cognitive dysfunction after cancer and cancer treatment. Data Sources: Review and synthesis of empirical articles. Conclusion: Cognitive rehabilitation approaches, including cognitive behavioral therapy and cognitive training, for cognitive dysfunction appear feasible to deliver, satisfactory to participants, and have shown promising results in cancer survivors. Future research is needed to address optimal dose, delivery method, access, cost, and the vulnerable aging cancer survivor population. Implications for Nursing Practice: Oncology nurses must understand the available evidence and be able to provide information and options to cancer survivors to address cognitive changes after cancer.
