If you are a family member or caregiver for a child with neuroblastoma, you likely have been looking for more information on treatment options, the details of each treatment, and the differences between inpatient vs outpatient care.
Join us for an in-depth interactive discussion of neuroblastoma. A panel of experts in neuroblastoma, including a pediatric oncologist, a pediatric nurse practitioner, and a patient-advocacy representative, examine available and emerging treatments, along with strategies to effectively communicate preferences and concerns with the care team.
Among the topics discussed are:
- Radioimmunotherapy and treating CNS/leptomeningeal metastases
- Patient and family factors
- Anticipating next steps
- Coping with side effects
- Finding support and access to services
- Long-term effects of treatment
- Survivorship issues
- Coping with relapse and emotional distress
You’ll hear video testimonials from real-world families and panelists will answer common questions about neuroblastoma.
After watching patients and family members will be able to navigate the different treatment options for neuroblastoma, communicate with doctors and other clinicians to confidently participate in treatment planning, and ensure they have access to supportive resources and services.
