Nicole L. Stout: 75% of patients who reported cancer-related cognitive impairment did NOT seek help

Maryam Lustberg shared a post by Nicole L. Stout, Research Assistant professor at West Virginia University, on X:

“Huge unmet needs Also when options are offered pharmacological interventions given with limited data over higher level evidence non pharmacological options.”

Quoting Nicole L. Stout‘s post:

75% of patients who reported cancer-related cognitive impairment did NOT seek help.
Why:

Reluctance
Lack of awareness of the condition as related to cancer or as meaningful or that something could actually be done
Lack of validation by a health care provider
Perceived as insignificant
The amazing thing is, the growing evidence-base for cognitive behavioral therapies in this space is remarkable. We need to better leverage
