The National Child Cancer Network has developed a set of national guidelines for the supportive care and management of children with cancer throughout New Zealand. They provide guidance for health care workers providing care for child cancer patients and aim to harmonise treatment across the country.
They cover topics more than 200 topics ranging from the management of fever through to accessing portacaths and are accessed over 4,000 times every month. They are reviewed on a three-yearly cycle and users are encouraged to provide online feedback about the utility and applicability of the guidelines as they use them.
The guidelines are available via the Starship website. Click below to access guidelines.
