Hackensack Meridian Children’s Health Establishes Focus on Cancer Survivorship

Multidisciplinary approach includes specialized Cure and Beyond clinic and research studies

Survivorship Cab Clinic

The survivorship program at Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital operates a specialized Cure and Beyond (CAB) clinic to care for survivors of pediatric cancer and bone marrow transplant through a multidisciplinary approach.

The program provides support for patients treated by our pediatric cancer, hematology, transplant and cellular/gene therapy teams who are 2 or more years past treatment, as well as patients and transplant survivors regardless of where they were treated.

The clinic’s physicians will:

  • Provide recommendations for screening and management of late effects that may potentially arise as a result of the treatment for childhood cancer
  • Increase awareness of potential late effects
  • Standardize and enhance follow-up care provided to survivors

The program follows the Children’s Oncology Group Long-Term Follow-Up Guidelines for Survivors of Childhood, Adolescent and Young Adult Cancers. The guidelines, developed as a collaborative effort of the Nursing Discipline and Late Effects Committee, are appropriate for asymptomatic survivors of childhood, adolescent or young adult cancers presenting for routine exposure based medical follow-up.
