The very cleverly named article, "Adolescence of Young Adult Oncology" published in the October 2009 issue of Seminars in Oncology is a very interesting update on the new developments and shifts in thinking within young adult oncology. The authors attempt to really define the population of patients that crosses traditional divides, as well as set up guidelines of competencies for clinical practitioners. The article also suggests that a collaboration between oncofertility, developmental psychology, and transitional care will be key for the field to mature.
