Childhood cancer CME from POEP


Although cancer in children is rare, it is estimated that 10,700 children (includ- ing 1,000 Texans) aged 0–14 years are diagnosed with cancer each year. While more than 80 percent of these


children are expected to be long-term survivors of their malignancy, 62.3 per- cent will experience some late effect of the illness and/or treatment. Often these issues will not become apparent until many years after completing therapy. “Primary Care Update: Childhood Can-


cer Survivorship” highlights the physical and psychosocial issues that may impact this population. The $35 course offers 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ includ- ing ethics. To download the course, visit the TMA Education Center at www.tex med.org/CME. For more information on the Physi- cian Oncology Education Program, visit www.poep.org.
