Survivorship: childhood cancer survivors.

Journal Article (Review)

Late effects of therapy for childhood cancer are frequent and serious. Fortunately, many late effects are also modifiable.

The primary care clinician should be an integral component in risk-based care of survivors. Continued communication between the "late effects" staff at the cancer center and the primary care clinician is essential for optimum care of this high-risk population.
