Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Priority Setting Partnership


Most cancer research has not considered the priorities of patients, caregivers, and clinicians, which often differ from the priorities of researchers. The goal of this project is to create a list of research priorities for AYA cancer in Canada based on what patients, caregivers, and clinicians would like to see researched. The priorities will be shared with funders so that future research addresses what matters most to AYAs, their caregivers, and clinicians. This is the time for you to be heard and influence important research that will have an impact on the lives of those affected by AYA cancer now and in the future.
