Abstract

As the prospects of cure for children with cancer increase, the long term consequences of treatment and the quality of life experienced by survivors assume greater importance. Strategies to encourage early return to school after diagnosis are of considerable importance both educationally and socially, but teachers require information to help them facilitate the child's return. The extent to which professional contact is fostered between children's cancer centres and the education service is the subject of this short survey.
