National Survey on AYA Research Priorities

The Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Cancer Priority Setting Partnership (PSP) is bringing together patients, caregivers, and clinicians to establish the top 10 research priorities for AYA cancer in Canada. The first stage of this process is a national survey. In this survey, responses are being collected from the AYA cancer community about what they would like to see answered by research. The AYA cancer community includes: people who received a diagnosis of cancer as an AYA (i.e., between ages 15-39 years), caregivers and bereaved caregivers of people diagnosed with cancer as an AYA, and clinicians who provide direct care to people diagnosed with cancer as AYAs. To complete the survey, visit: The survey is available in English and French.

The AYA Cancer PSP is led by Drs. Perri Tutelman and Fiona Schulte (University of Calgary) and Chantale Thurston (AYA CAN) along with a Steering Group of patients, caregivers, and clinicians in AYA cancer from across the country who oversee the Priority-Setting Partnership process.
