About this book

This authoritative reference examines in depth the myriad challenges facing pediatric cancer survivors and proposes a robust framework for structured follow-up of these patients through adulthood. Approaches to long-term follow-up include both established models of care and targeted models of lifelong surveillance of late effects by bodily systems and neurological outcomes. Sections devoted to quality of life and re-entry after treatment focus on key concerns such as health risk behaviors, school and career issues, psychological challenges, and care disparities. And a robust resources section adds extra usefulness to the expert coverage.

Among the Handbook's topics:

• Developmental considerations in the transition from child and adolescent to adult survivorship.
• Long-term follow-up roadmaps by disease and treatment.
• Neuropsychological effects of pediatric brain tumors and associated treatment.
• Building resiliency in childhood cancer survivors: a clinician’s perspective.
• School issues and educational strategies for survivors of childhood cancer.
• Educating and preparing the childhood cancer survivor for long-term care: a curriculum model for cancer centers.

A work of rare scope, scholarship, and clinical acumen, the Handbook of Long-Term Care of the Childhood Cancer Survivor is a rewarding, practice-building resource essential to a wide range of healing professionals, including primary care physicians, pediatricians, oncologists, nurses, psychologists, neuropsychologists, child psychologists, and licensed therapists.

Reviews

“This book provides evidenced-based reporting of the issues facing childhood cancer survivors. The information is accurate, and the book is detail-oriented and comprehensive. There are useful tables and lists for reference materials and for teaching. There are many manuscripts but few books on childhood cancer survivor care. A book compiling this data is useful for teaching and as a reference for healthcare providers.” (Linda J. Butros, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2016)
