PanCare


PanCare is a multidisciplinary pan-European network of professionals, survivors and their families that aims to reduce the frequency, severity and impact of late side-effects of the treatment of children and adolescents with cancer. Most European countries are represented. PanCare is working to achieve equity of access to care for childhood cancer survivors across Europe, to perform collaborative research and to act as a resource of research based information concerning all late side-effects of cancer treatment. An important aim of PanCare is to work with the European Community to increase awareness and research about childhood cancer survivors. The long-term strategic aim of PanCare is to ensure that every European survivor of childhood and adolescent cancer receives optimal long-term care.

The Board of PanCare is made up of 15 members from around Europe - a list of the current board members can be accessed here.

PanCare meetings take place twice a year and are usually open to all who register. The venues are spread throughout Europe. The minutes of these meetings can be found on the PanCare website. www.pancare.eu

PanCare has given rise to two EU-funded studies called PanCareSurFup (PanCare Childhood and Adolescent Cancer Survivor Care and Follow-Up Studies) and PanCareLife (PanCare Studies in Fertility and Ototoxicity to Improve Quality of Life after Cancer during Childhood, Adolescence and Young Adulthood).
