“The research is clinically relevant to the young people with whom I work. I use the journal in teaching nursing students about the needs of young people with cancer.”

Journal of Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology (JAYAO) focuses on a group of patients who are often lost amongst much larger groups of either younger or older patients.”

“There is an increasing global awareness of the challenges faced by adolescents and young adults (AYA) with cancer, who have been described as ‘the lost tribe’ because they have fallen between the health care systems developed for children and older patients. Health care providers now recognize their own shortcomings in attempting to meet the needs of this population. Journal of Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology (JAYAO) will address the burgeoning desire for the knowledge required to improve the care of young people with malignant disease.”
          Ronald D. Barr, MB ChB, MD
          Professor of Pediatrics, Pathology and Medicine
          McMaster University

"With a surge of AYAO articles published in peer-reviewed journals during the past three years, from less than 50 per year during the prior decade to more than 4000 in 2009, JAYAO fills an imminent need. Moreover, it provides a home for a long orphaned discipline."

"There has been increasing recognition over the last decade that the adolescent and young adult oncology patient population has disparities in care. These delivery gaps are reflective of gaps in knowledge and scientific focus. It is time for a journal dedicated to the issues of the population, creating both a hub and a stimulus for research in this burgeoning field. This resource will surely bring improvements in care and survival for the young adult with cancer!"

         North Texas Health Science Center
