Management of pediatric patients with cancer is complex and requires multidisciplinary coordination to organize cancer treatment and supportive care during treatment. In addition, care coordination is essential during the survivorship and end-of-life phases of pediatric cancer treatment. Health care professionals, including case managers and medical directors, need to be educated regarding these issues so that they can facilitate the multidisciplinary coordination needed to ensure that all of the needs of the patient and family are met.
This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of case managers, medical directors, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other health care professionals who manage the care of patients with cancer. These webinars may be of particular interest to those in care coordination roles and those who interact with, counsel, and refer patients with cancer to appropriate sources of care and/or make coverage decisions in both managed care organizations and clinical settings.
Following this activity, participants should be able to:
- Summarize general treatment strategies for pediatric patients with cancer.
- Coordinate appropriate supportive care for pediatric patients with cancer during the treatment and survivorship phases.
- Create a plan to ensure compassionate end-of-life care for pediatric patients with cancer that meets all the needs of the patient and family.
