As stated in the World Health Organisation (WHO) definition, early identification of problems is a key aspect of patient care. For patients with high-grade glioma, there are no consistent ways to detect memory and processing problems following radiation.
Early detection of these problems could trigger timely referral to a specialist and access to rehabilitation programs. The rehabilitation may work to improve memory and processing function, reduce symptom burden, and benefit overall quality of life.
This is a survey inviting patients, their family and friends, and healthcare professionals to share their experiences of how everyday memory and processing is altered following radiotherapy. The results of this survey will work towards developing a simple screening tool to detect changes in functioning in patients with high-grade glioma after the completion of radiotherapy.
