Abstract

Cancer-and cancer treatment–related cognitive impairment is a common, bothersome, and potentially debilitating symptom incurred by cancer survivors. Cognitive impairment has a significant impact on patients’ day-to-day functioning and quality of life, but it remains under-recognized and undertreated. This article, which is an update from the initial Oncology Nursing Society Putting Evidence Into Practice for cancer-and cancer treatment–related cognitive impairment, provides a comprehensive critical review and summary of the evidence regarding interventions addressing cognitive impairment for cancer survivors. This article examines the effectiveness of interventions focused on cancer-and cancer treatment–related cognitive impairment, makes recommendations for practice, and identifies gaps in knowledge and areas for further research.
