The Prevalence of Cognitive and Behavioural Sequelae of Adults with a Brain Tumour
Cognitive and behavioural changes have been noted in patients diagnosed with a brain tumour (BT). Both patients and family members report that dealing with such changes can prove to be overwhelming and distressing, yet little is known about the extent of these impairments and importantly, suitable management approaches.
This research project investigated the prevalence of cognitive and behavioural sequelae in patients with a BT diagnosis and whom have undergone associated treatments. A sample of primary BT patients and their family members from Liverpool and Royal North Shore Hospitals were administered validated questionnaires to assess cognitive, emotional and behavioural symptoms.
