The 2016 AfterCare Education Day examined selected clinical and psychosocial issues impacting childhood cancer survivors and will provide delegates with theoretical knowledge and practical strategies to manage these issues in order to improve care provided to survivors of pediatric cancers. Over 90 pediatric oncologists, nurses, social workers, and other provincial interdisciplinary AfterCare staff working with childhood cancer survivors will enhance their knowledge of late effects associated with childhood cancer and be exposed to new strategies to manage this unique patient population.
