Quality of Life and Neurocognitive Function in Brain Tumor Survivors

Quality of Life and Neurocognitive Function in Brain Tumor Survivors

Neuropsychologist Carol Armstrong, PhD, presents the spectrum of cognitive, psychological, emotional and physical effects that confront the survivors of brain tumor treatment, and efforts at Penn Medicine and elsewhere to both avoid and minimize these effects. Dr. Armstrong’s wide-ranging discussion includes the causes and risk factors for depression, strategies and goals for cognitive rehabilitation--and an algorithm for determining when patients should be referred into rehabilitation services.
