Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Worldwide, more than 4 million children suffer from oncological disease. In this setting, pediatric palliative care (PPC) must not be limited to the terminality period, but it should be rather established as early as possible and continue over the disease trajectory, regardless of treatment administration, with the aim to improve the quality of life of patients and their families (see Benini et al, Cancers 2022).

The Special Issue ‘Quality of Life and Management of Pediatric Cancer’ aims at collecting, in a single editorial effort, experiences and well-grounded opinions on the management of pediatric cancers from all over the world. In particular, studies or case reports concerning the early establishment of PPC in the oncology setting would be welcome.

Our audience is multidisciplinary and composed of oncologists, palliative care specialists, nurses and psychologists with an interest in PPC.

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in Cancers.
