Pediatric and Adolescent Survivorship Clinic at UCLA
Today, nearly 75 percent of all children with cancer have a chance of surviving five years and beyond thanks to remarkable advances in treatments. The dramatic growth in survivorship has created a community that may face unique health and psychological challenges as they age, referred to as the “late effects” of the disease and its treatment.
The most common late effects include:
- Cardiac and respiratory problems
- Secondary cancers
- Other late effects include:
- Learning disabilities
- Growth and fertility issues
- Psychological distress
The Pediatric, Adolescent and Young Adult Survivorship Clinic at UCLA was created to address the medical and quality-of-life issues of pediatric, adolescent and young adult cancer survivors through a comprehensive health evaluation, a psychosocial assessment and targeted specialty referrals. The program also helps survivors with educational, vocational and insurance coverage challenges.
