ADOLESCENT & YOUNG ADULT CANCER PRIORITY SETTING PARTNERSHIP
WHAT IS THE AYA CANCER
PRIORITY SETTING PARTNERSHIP?
Each year, nearly 9,200 adolescents and young adults (AYAs) aged 15-39 are diagnosed with cancer in Canada. AYAs with cancer have unique medical and psychosocial needs that often go unmet. The AYA Priority Setting Partnership (PSP) is bringing together AYA patients, caregivers, and clinicians to identify the key areas of research that are needed to improve care for AYAs with cancer in Canada. The PSP will result in a list of Top 10 Research Priorities that will guide a new research agenda. We are following the James Lind Alliance Method for this PSP.
