Cancer (Geriatric): Cognitive Rehabilitation For At-Risk Older Cancer Patients Receiving Chemotherapy: A Pilot Study Evaluating Feasibility And Impact

Research Question:
Does a dual-approach cognitive rehabilitation intervention help reduce loss of independence and chemotherapy-related cognitive impairment?

Basic Study Information

Purpose:
In Phase I all subjects will receive cognitive rehabilitation intervention which includes, workshops and at-home computer-based cognitive training. In the phase II portion of the study, depending on the group you are assigned, you may receive cognitive rehabilitation intervention or usual care. This will help researchers develop a doable approach to cognitive rehabilitation and see if it helps reduce the risk of developing progressive cognitive impairments which is a common side effect of chemotherapy.
