Prospective memory defines the ability to remember to perform an action related to a specific task planned for the future. Interventions aimed to improve prospective memory have an impact on the patient’s quality of life. While most interventions are aimed to improve prospective memory in general, implementation intentions influence specific automatic processes related to prospective memory. The efficacy of this type of intervention has been proven on different samples of patients as well as on lay people. We argue that, while in cancer patients who suffer from perspective memory deficit this particular intervention has not been studied yet, it could be usefully implemented to foster patients’ involvement, quality of life and adherence to care.
