Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The care of adolescents and young adult cancer patients remains a challenge for all healthcare providers as they neither fit into the pediatric nor the adult oncology world.
For this Special Issue on "Adolescent and young adult oncology—ongoing challenges and developments in the future", the aim is to present the full range of issues and topics within the AYA cancer world, including its current status but also future developments.
This Special Issue aims to look at the following main topics: tumor spectrum; treatment and treatment protocols; models of care; and survivorship and long-term follow-up, especially the psychosocial and economic impact.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following: treatment for AYA cancer including special entities; outcomes; long-term sequelae including psychosocial, etc.; models of care for AYA oncology; and fertility.
I/We look forward to receiving your contributions.
