Experts highlight gaps in knowledge on caring for survivors of teenage and young adult cancers
Date:6/10/2008

e things are happening already, but in a fragmented way, with some guidelines in existence and some centres issuing patient passports. But Prof Hawkins believes it needs to happen in a much more organised and standardised way, and, at present, there is a big gap in knowledge about the 15-24-year-old age group.

"For teenagers and young adults we really need to extend the evidence base. There's still a huge area of ignorance in relation to the consequences of treatment in the late teenage and young adult years. We hope to address this through the NCRI group that I chair.

"In the interim, we have got to use what we know from survivors of childhood cancers. However, we are much more ahead of the game for children up to the age of 15 than we are for the generality of cancer survivors," he concludes.
