Childhood Cancer International – Survivorship webinar

26th of June 2021 (11:00pm AEST)

Childhood Cancer International celebrates Survivor’s Week the last week of June (21st to 27th June). Because everything related to this theme is fundamental for our community, they decided to organize a webinar on survivorship, in close collaboration with SIOP.

During a preparation meeting held a few months ago, the attendees (parents, survivors, and other) chose the two main topics they thought should be addressed in the webinar: mental health issues and the creation / strengthening of survivors’ structures around the world.

The webinar will have two main parts. In the first, more scientific, part they will have psychologists, investigators, and nurses from several parts of the world holding short presentations about mental health issues. In the second part they will have a roundtable with survivors from different geographies.

Duration of the webinar: 2 hours

They are in the process of finalizing the agenda, further information will be shared as soon as it becomes available.
