Pediatric Oncology

  1. I am looking for policies and procedures relating to the pediatric neutropenic patient. How are you caring for the IV accesses (ports and broviacs)? I have written to APON, since I am a member, and not a word after several requests. I thought by buying a membership, they would be a resource, but NOOOOO! Thanks for any help!

    Hi-
    I have some standards from a Canadian children's hospital-but best practice should be similar where you are. If you would like me to forward them to you, let me know.

    Also, If you have any resources, I would really appreciate it-I am working on a policy and procedure manual for a camp for kids with cancer (but I am new to pediatric oncology)
    thanks!

    I would very much appreciate anything you might be able to send me. I will look into the camp policies and procedures and get back to you.
