Long-term needs of adolescent and young adult survivors. Cancer survivors diagnosed during adolescence and young adulthood have a higher risk of developing a wide range of chronic health problems. This “in-between” group often doesn’t have a medical home for long-term follow up and may be more transient, with not even a regular primary care provider. In this session we’ll look at what some of the potential health risks are for AYA survivors and approaches to lower those risks. Dr. Waseem Alhushki, Cure 4 The Kids Foundation
Breast Cancer Treatment Advances
11:25 a.m.-12:25 p.m.
Patient mental health: A proactive and trauma informed approach.For many people with cancer, the diagnosis and treatment can be a trauma with long- and short-term emotional effects. The changes in a person’s life—physical, cognitive, relational, and others—can have far-reaching implications for a person’s mental and physical health. Health care workers can use trauma-informed interventions to help patients manage the changes associated with diagnosis, treatment and survivorship to promote more positive outcomes. Ashley Taylor, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
Clinical Session TBD
12:25-1:45 p.m. Lunch, Exhibits and Awards sponsored by GRAIL
Food insecurity, crash diets and homeopathic remedies: Supporting patients through good nutrition. What a cancer patient feeds themselves can have an impact on their outcome. Food insecurity can contribute to a patient’s anxiety and can lead to malnutrition and/or trade-offs between food and other resources. Crash diets and “miracle foods” can also contribute to adverse effects during a patient’s care. In this session will review ways to discuss nutrition, counsel on “miracle cures,” and share resources that provide true patient support. Julie Shimko, MA, RD, Outpatient Oncology Registered Dietitian, Stanford Oncology
2:45-3 p.m. Break and Exhibits sponsored by GRAIL
Delivering equitable care for rural and underserved Nevadans.Rural and underserved Nevadans face many challenges in finding quality, timely, and accessible healthcare. They often must overcome a number of barriers including transportation, provider shortages, missed work, and poor access to broadband internet, and challenges with receiving care across state lines, among others. During this session we’ll look at opportunities and solutions to connect high quality cancer screening, treatment, and survivorship care to Nevadans living in rural and underserved communities. Lisa Dettling, Executive Vice President Ancillary Services, Nevada Health Centers
