Guidelines

These guidelines are produced by members of CCLG. They generally relate to specific aspects of the care of children and young people with cancer. Although issued primarily for use by healthcare professionals, they may also be of interest to families. 

Mouthcare Guidelines for Children and Young People with Cancer: Evidence-based Guidelines

When a child is on treatment for cancer, either with chemotherapy or radiotherapy, there are times when their mouth can become sore. The mouth can also be a source of infection. This guideline was developed by a team of nurses and doctors who looked at the best ways of looking after the child's mouth to prevent or minimise these problems.

Therapy Based Long Term Follow up Practice Statement

After a child finishes their treatment they will continue to come for check ups. Part of the check up will be to make sure none of the chemotherapy or radiotherapy has caused any long term problems. These guidelines are used by the doctors and nurses to check for any possible problems linked to treatment.
