The Childhood Cancer Switzerland Survivors’ Centre actively promotes the interests of those affected. It cooperates nationally and internationally with various stakeholders in order to more purposefully advance the improvement of follow-up care with the exchange of experience and knowledge and to gain insights into the latest research findings.
The competence centre co-leads the follow-up care working group, which consists of doctors, researchers, parental representatives and survivors. They all work together to optimise follow-up care services in Switzerland. This includes uniform follow-up care guidelines and a personalised follow-up care plan in the form of a Survivorship Passport. The competence centre is in close contact with the member organisations of Childhood Cancer Switzerland and participates in various capacities in congresses and specialist conferences in Switzerland and abroad. Since 2020, it has been responsible for the Survivorship area as a Board Member of Childhood Cancer International Europe.
