UCCS20127 / MAAT-G Phase II / MagnusonResearch Question:
Can a behavioral intervention tailored for older adults mitigate the development of
cancer-related cognitive dysfunction?
Basic Study Information
Cancer-related cognitive dysfunction (CRCD) affects up to 75% of patients receiving
chemotherapy and older adults are at greater risk of developing CRCD, which can negatively
affect their functional independence and quality of life. Memory and Attention Adaptation
Training (MAAT) is a promising treatment for CRCD that improves perceived cognition
in younger cancer survivors, but needs to be adapted for older adults to address their
unique needs. The proposed study will adapt MAAT for older adults using feedback from
key stakeholders (older adults with cancer and their caregivers), and subsequently
test the ability of MAAT to improve or maintain cognition for older adults with breast
cancer receiving adjuvant chemotherapy.
