Late Effects in Childhood and Adolescent Cancer Survivors – A Course by PanCare and SIOP Europe


Late Effects in Childhood and Adolescent Cancer Survivors – A Course by PanCare and SIOP Europe

13-14 January 2022 (Virtual)
 

"Cure is not enough" - already in 1974 Giulio J. D'Angio had the vision of childhood and adolescent cancer survivors and their long-term follow-up care.

With around 80 % survival of childhood and adolescent cancer, around 500.000 survivors live in Europe today and the number is increasing. At least two thirds experience long-term health-related problems. What are their problems? What are the risk factors? How are these problems diagnosed and treated? Can they be prevented?

All these questions will be answered during the Course. Different perspectives from an inter- and multidisciplinary team of late effects specialists across Europe will be demonstrated including the perspective from survivors themselves. Interactive case discussions and tools for the daily practice are part of the course as well.
 

Who should attend?

  • Fellows in paediatric haematology and oncology
  • Junior faculty at academic medical centres from across Europe
