Our project Pan Care Follow Up (http://pancarefollowup.eu/) features in the latest edition of Horizon Magazine EU. Read the story here. The aim of Pan Care Follow Up is to improve the quality of life for survivors of childhood and adolescent cancer by bringing evidence-based, person-centred care to clinical practice in the real world.
The longer-term effects of cancer and its treatment are a growing problem for survivors of childhood and adolescent cancers. Aggressive chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments can have long-lasting side effects, while surgery to remove cancers can also lead to chronic problems. Patients can also suffer from chronic fatigue along with mental health problems such as post-traumatic stress disorder and depression.
