Childhood Cancer: A Multi-Disciplinary Perpective

Chronic Illness is a journal that focuses on multi-disciplinary approaches to disease treatment and management.  This month, the journal focuses on childhood cancer.

Articles are available to the public for free viewing until May. I’ve listed links to them below, and I’ve found them to be a good mix of original scientific research, clinical observation, and the often forgotten patient / caregiver perspective. Definitely the best multi-disciplinary “round up” of current articles that I’ve seen on childhood cancer recently — check them out if you get a chance!
