Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer (Canada) PSP

Each year, nearly 9,200 Canadian adolescents and young adults (AYAs) between the ages of 15-39 years are diagnosed with cancer. 

About the Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer PSP

AYAs are increasingly recognized as an oncology population with distinct medical and psychosocial needs, which are largely unmet and unaddressed in the healthcare system. The Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer PSP will work with patients, carers and clinicians to identify and prioritise uncertainties about AYA cancer diagnosis, treatment, survivorship, and end of life care.

The Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer PSP initial survey opened in September 2023 and is now closed.  More information will be available here when the shortlisting survey opens.
