Dr Carla Ripamonti - Instituto Nazionale dei Tumori, Milan, Italy

Dr Ripamonti talks to ecancer at SIOG 2017 in Warsaw.

She discusses aspects of cognitive impairment during cancer treatment. 

This is of particular importance as survival rates increase, leaving more people alive, but coping with the impairment of cancer treatment.

Dr Ripamonti encourages a change in the care of these patients, with more attention paid to patient welfare and state of mind.

She provides some ideas and examples of initiatives which will help these patients.

This service has been kindly supported by an unrestricted grant from Janssen Oncology.
