Finishing cancer treatment is a positive time for survivors of childhood cancer and their families, however this time may also bring about feelings of worry, uncertainty or confusion about the future.
The Long Term Follow-up Program (LTFP) provides support and survivorship care for children, adolescents and their families by:
- Providing a tailored medical, nursing and allied health service that is designed for your child needs.
- Helping children and adolescents and their families to transition to adult community and/or hospital services
- Offering information about what to expect when coming off treatment
The program is available to all paediatric & adolescent (18 years or younger) survivors of childhood cancer living in Victoria. The PICS LTFP clinics are held at the Royal Children’s Hospital, Monash Children’s Hospital, and at designated regional centres.
