Young adult survivors of childhood cancer - through the lens of a person-centred approach
The survival rate in childhood cancer has increased to over 80% in the Nordic countries. However, the intense cancer treatment causes complications even many years after completed treatment. Long-term follow-up (LTFU) clinics for childhood cancer survivors have the responsibility to meet the needs for the patients with possible complications or risks for future complications.
The aim of the study will be to explore how a person-centred approach could facilitate access to health care and how to balance the meeting between health-care professionals' expectations and adult childhood cancer survivors needs to achieve their quality of life. Explore how to optimize outpatient LTFU clinics’ organization to encourage young adults’ knowledge and involvement.
