Unique approach needed to accurately assess health of young adult cancer survivors
Date:4/11/2012

New Rochelle, NY, April 11, 2012Childhood cancer survivors are living longer and there is an urgent need for better, more comprehensive ways to evaluate their health-related quality of life and need for psychosocial services, according to a review article in Journal of Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology (JAYAO), a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed publication from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.
