Managing Chemo Brain at Work

Cognitive challenges are common for people who have gone through cancer treatment. Often called "chemo brain," they can affect memory, focus and confidence
— especially at work. While, unfortunately, there is no single solution to address the effects, there are some things that may help you manage it, including creating a priorities list, doing one thing at a time, taking notes and building breaks into your day. Our article "Working with Chemo Brain" offers additional tips to improve your performance on the job.

For more on "chemo brain" and its impact on cognitive functioning, read our archived blog post "Chemo Brain: It's Not Just in Your Head."
