Understanding and addressing the training needs of clinicians to improve end-of-life care for adolescents and young adults with cancer. You are invited to take part in a survey of clinicians to investigate end-of-life communication for adolescents and young adults (AYAs/TYAs) with cancer. The study is led by Dr Ursula Sansom-Daly (Behavioural Sciences Unit, Kids Cancer Centre, Sydney Australia) and is supported by an AYA Global Accord Psycho-Oncology Research Acceleration Grant.
This study is developing international consensus around what ‘best practice’ end-of-life communication with AYA should look like, and what sort of training healthcare providers most need to improve care in space. Healthcare providers who have cared for at least 5 adolescents/young adults (aged 15-39) with cancer through the end-of-life phase are invited to contribute their expertise to help create this guidance. Your voices are critical to helping us advance research and practice for AYA whose cancer cannot be cured. (The survey takes approx. 15 mins to do)
