Résumé: Adolescents and Young Adults (AYA) with cancer are distinct from the pediatric and the older adult cancer populations with respect to their spectrum of diseases, the biology of their cancers, their developmental status and their particular psychosocial needs. Moreover they are poorly served by the dichotomy of the pediatric and adult oncology services. In many parts of the world AYA with cancer and survivors of cancer in childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood face disparities of care affecting quality of life and other outcomes. In Canada, AYA with cancer experience these disparities in a health care system that is population-based rather than patient-centric. Improving this situation will necessitate that AYA can benefit not only from the current state of knowledge regarding optimal cancer care, but also from research directed to the biology, treatment and specific needs of this population. In Canada a national task force for AYA with cancer was convened in 2008 with the mandate to develop recommendations and to develop a framework of action for the implementation of those recommendations. This webinar will present these recommendations, the background on which they are based and the framework for action that will involve member institutes of CAPHC.
