Childhood Cancer Survey
Childhood cancer survivors should receive long-term risk-based follow-up care, but there appears to be a disconnect among the physicians treating cancer, the survivors, and their primary care physicians. This survey examines the primary care physicians’ experiences and beliefs regarding long-term health issues and health care practice patterns of adolescent and young adult survivors of pediatric cancer (less than 21 years of age).
The survey was distributed to over 54,000 active members of the American Academy of Family Physicians.
To describe the attitudes and knowledge of family physician regarding the health care of childhood cancer survivors, including understanding of the primary cancer diagnosis, its associated therapies and late effects, and appropriate screening for these individuals.
This project is currently under analysis.
