Children treated for cancer experience a myriad of short- and long-term adverse effects that require special attention. Rehabilitation professionals need to recognize these adverse effects and the potential impact on the overall physical development and psychological well-being of children with cancer. This course will educate clinicians on the most common types of cancer in the pediatric population, their associated treatments, and the potential adverse effects of treatment. The impact of these adverse effects on the normal gross motor and psychosocial development of children with cancer will be discussed. Assessment of the impact on the physical development of children with cancer will be reviewed. Finally, rehabilitation interventions to mitigate the short-term, long-term, and late effects of cancer treatment will be reviewed.
