abstract

  • Adequately powered longitudinal studies including formal neurocognitive and QOL assessments are needed to advance our understanding of the incidence of cognitive dysfunction and its impact on functional ability and QOL in ovarian cancer patients. These research efforts may ultimately contribute to treatment decision-making through the identification of vulnerable patients, and to the development of appropriate intervention strategies to improve cognitive function and QOL.
