Psychosocial management of AYAs diagnosed with cancer
Psychosocial management of AYAs diagnosed with cancer: Guidance for health professionals
This guidance has been produced by the Clinical Oncology Society of Australia (COSA) as part of a national Youth Cancer Networks Program project funded by the Australian Government.
The guidance has been developed for general practitioners and other primary health professionals involved in the management of AYAs with cancer. It provides evidence-based recommendations and practice points to assist general practitioners:
- recognise signs and symptoms that could be caused by cancer in AYA patients
- make decisions about appropriate investigations
- make a timely and appropriate referral of AYAs with suspected cancer.
