Sammanfattning

Swedish National Guidelines for long-term follow-up of childhood cancer survivors The prognosis of childhood cancer has improved during the last 30-40 years. Today, the five year survival is in excess of 80%. Therefore the number of childhood cancer survivors is increasing. Today, there are approximately 9,000 childhood cancer survivors in Sweden. Unfortunately, the number of late complications after childhood cancer increases with follow-up time. Thirty years after cancer treatment 60-80% of the survivors will have at least one late complication. In a common effort between national representatives of paediatric and adult oncology in Sweden as well as the specialties mostly involved in controls and care of late complications, the pre-existing recommendations from the national paediatric oncology late effect group (SALUB) were updated and adapted to serve as a nation-wide guideline for health care authorities when planning the screening and care of former childhood cancer patients. After a cycle of referral to the national societies of the specialties and presumed user organizations and a second cycle of referrals to health care authorities around Sweden, the guidelines were approved by all six Swedish Regional Cancer Centers in May, 2016. For most caregivers the implementation is expected to take place from the autumn 2016 and onwards.
