The Developmental Trajectory of the Childhood Cancer Survivor

Presentation Description: It is widely known that growing up with childhood cancer may have consequences in adulthood.  Little is known about possible predictors of these consequences. The course of life (fulfilling developmental tasks and achieving developmental milestones) may be an important mediator of later quality of life and psychological functioning. The course of life of 353 Dutch survivors in comparison to 508 peers was discussed in this presentation.
