Paper Presentation: Child/Adolescent Cancer Treatment Experience — Analysis of AYA Cancer Patient Priority Symptoms Using Text Mining Software (210-2)

5:00 – 6:00 pm Thursday, October 28

The symptoms associated with cancer treatment are a major concern for the adolescent and young adult (AYA) population. Understanding these distinct symptom experiences, especially AYAs' priority symptoms—those that take the forefront of a patient’s concern—can support healthcare providers in providing personalized care.

This project involved a secondary analysis of AYAs’ responses to three questions related to their priority symptoms using quantitative text analysis. These questions were (1) “What makes this a priority symptom?” (2) “What do you think causes it?” and (3) “What do you do to make it better?”
