Each journey presents its own physical, emotional, and psychosocial challenges that healthcare providers need to be attentive to. In this episode, Dr. Kevin Oeffinger, from Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, joins us to discuss the history of pediatric survivorship, physical, long-term, and late effects of treatment, including fertility considerations, strategies to support the survivor through psychosocial and cognitive effects, following a survivorship care plan, symptom monitoring, follow-up care, and so much more.
