Description

Purpose Cancer is the leading cause of nonaccidental death among adolescents and young adults (AYAs). High-intensity end-of-life care is expensive and may not be consistent with patient goals. However,the intensity of end-of-life care forAYAdecedents with cancer--especially the effect of care received at specialty versus nonspecialty centers--remains understudied.
