Adolescents and young adults are a growing population of patients with cancer who face unique developmental and logistical challenges in receiving oncologic care. Issues of fertility, sexual health, educational or early career attainment and financial burden shape the landscape of cancer treatment from the moment of diagnosis and on to survivorship.

ASTRO has developed a comprehensive survivorship care plan and checklist with common issues encountered by AYA patients in the course of oncology care. Yet the prospective identification and triage of these issues, similar to other patient reported outcomes, has not been addressed. This session will provide attendees with a comprehensive overview of the challenges faced by AYA patients based on available clinical evidence, with a particular focus on those unique to radiation treatment. The session will build on this foundation to provide a framework for radiation oncologists to implement and translate AYA focused assessments and interventions in collaboration with other care providers and specialists.
