Abstract

Objectives: To provide a comprehensive summary of the coping strategies and evidence-based interventions used to address cognitive impairment following cancer and cancer treatment. Data Sources: Review and synthesis of empirical articles. Conclusion: Survivors identified a structured environment and validation of their cognitive concerns as essential to adjustment. Although interventional research is still limited, non-pharmacological approaches such as cognitive training programs show the greatest promise. Implications for Nursing Practice: Oncology nurses must understand the available evidence and provide information and guidance to cancer survivors to address cognitive changes after cancer.
