Presentation Description: One of the most frequently reported and debilitating neurocognitive symptoms following a neurological illness involving the brain is that of memory impairment. The presentation provided an overview of the neurocognitive changes that can occur following cancer treatment with an emphasis on memory function. A few strategies were covered that are known to be effective in addressing milder memory symptoms, including commercial smartphones that are optimally suited to support day-to-day memory functioning.
