The impact of different definitions and reference groups on the prevalence of cognitive impairment: a study in postmenopausal breast cancer patients before the start of adjuvant systemic therapy

Objective: Several prospective studies into the effects of adjuvant systemic therapy on cognitive functioning suggest that a proportion of breast cancer patients show cognitive deficits already before the start of systemic therapy. Owing to, among others, methodological inconsistency, studies report different rates of this pre‐treatment cognitive impairment.

Abstract

Objective: Several prospective studies into the effects of adjuvant systemic therapy on cognitive functioning suggest that a proportion of breast cancer patients show cognitive deficits already before the start of systemic therapy. Owing to, among others, methodological inconsistency, studies report different rates of this pre‐treatment cognitive impairment. We examined the impact of four different criteria of cognitive impairment and two types of reference groups (a study‐specific healthy reference group versus published normative data) on the prevalence of cognitive impairment.
