Date Presented 03/27/20

This pilot study describes the impact of a combined remote intervention of computerized cognitive training together with occupational-based treatment on patients with cancer-related cognitive impairment. Positive outcomes were found in occupational performance, cognitive functions, quality of life, and mood. This treatment can possibly add to the therapeutic landscape of cancer-related cognitive impairment, which currently impairs the lives of millions worldwide.
