About The Website





Welcome to the Pediatric Oncology Education Materials (POEM) Website!

This website is a non-profit site and is the product of collaboration between Canadian health care professionals/providers (HCPs) working at the BC Children's Hospital (Vancouver), the BC Cancer Agency (Vancouver), The Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (Ottawa) and the Hospital for Sick Children (Toronto).

This website provides basic information about important aspects of pediatric oncology for HCPs and students. The aim of this site is to inspire interest in this important subject and to help educate HCPs to give the best care to children like Yuder - he and his family made the paper cranes that decorate this site.

The Basic Oncology Module is designed specifically to provide information which supplements the University of British Columbia undergraduate medical and nursing education curriculums.

Information given in the different subject modules is designed to supplement the training of pediatric oncology residents in the first year of their program and general pediatric residents who rotate through Pediatric Oncology.

The information provided about pediatric radiation oncology is designed to be adequate to use as study notes for the Canadian Royal College Radiation Oncology Fellowship examination.

This website is an educational resource only and provides an overview of the diagnosis, staging and treatment of common pediatric tumours.  Please read the DISCLAIMER

Please put your email address in your comments if you would like a reply. I recently heard from a Polish survivor of childhood cancer and am unable to respond to her because I don't know her email address.
