Paediatric care for children with cancer

What is Paediatric Care?

Paediatric care is medical care for children and young people. Paediatricians are Doctors and Nurses who specialise in this area, working alongside other health and social care professionals and services to provide the best possible care for their young patients. It also ensures their patient receives the best possible care plan for their illness and recovery. For example, Paediatric Doctors may work with hospital services, and other specialist medical departments.

Role of a Paediatrician

  • Monitoring patients’ condition and suggesting changes in care where necessary
  • Providing families with medical information to support their circumstances
  • Connecting with other services, such as hospital and mental health services
  • Support child protection work
  • Above only covers a small portion of the tasks of a Paediatrician

Paediatric care for children with cancer?

It can be a daunting time when your child has been diagnosed with cancer, especially when you are unsure of where to go about looking for the right care. There are many avenues that you can look at, but you can be guaranteed that your child’s paediatric doctors and nurses are going to provide the best care possible.

These doctors work closely with children and young people in their care, along with their parents and family, to provide the highest quality of care. The care put in place places the patient at the centre of everything, with care tailored to their wants and needs. Cancer will have a massive effect on their everyday life from certain treatments like radiation and chemotherapy. It is vitally important that these children are made extremely conformable and content by their care providers at such a difficult time.
