Clinical Practice (assessment, diagnosis, treatment, knowledge translation/EBP, implementation science, program development)
There has been a recent push in research describing key components of comprehensive cancer rehabilitation programs and the importance of surveillance model care. However, services continue to vary widely by institution and there are few programs that meet the specific requirements recommended for comprehensive programs. Current program recommendations focus on the needs of adults only; attention also needs to be given to the unique needs of children with cancer. We will discuss development of a multidisciplinary cancer rehabilitation program for children, outline its effectiveness, and describe areas for continued improvement.
