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?
These questions were answered during the Course. Different perspectives from an inter- and multidisciplinary team of late effects specialists across Europe were demonstrated including the perspective from survivors themselves.
The recordings of a selection of session are available here.
