A diagnosis of childhood cancer understandably has a devastating impact on the emotional health and wellbeing of the child and their family, both during and after treatment. Children and young people’s treatment and experience of cancer differs greatly from adults and we recognise the need for a personalised approach to their cancer care. 

It’s so important for us to listen and learn from children and young people in order to provide them with the best possible care and experience throughout treatment and to reduce the impact it has on them later in life. 

Following the publication of the first ever Under 16 Cancer Patient Experience Survey results in October, this webinar will explore the feedback and experiences of young people and children affected by cancer. 

The expert panel will discuss the results of the survey, the lessons that have been learned, looking at the positive experiences patients are having that we can build on, where improvements can be made and how the insights can be used to change policy and practice. 

The session is for those working with, and supporting, children and young people affected by cancer. This includes, but isn’t restricted to, healthcare professionals, parents and carers, and charities.
