Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce a Special Issue entitled "Advancements in Child, Adolescent, and Young Adult Cancer Survivorship" to be published in Cancers. As Guest Editor, I am excited to invite you to contribute your valuable research to this significant endeavor.

Childhood cancer survivorship presents unique challenges and opportunities, ranging from long-term health effect surveillance to psychosocial factors influencing quality of life. This Special Issue aims to showcase experiences, models, and approaches in survivorship programs, late effect monitoring, chronic diseases in long-term follow-up, health-related quality of life, resiliency, lifestyles, psychosocial factors, educational and rehabilitation strategies, as well as barriers and disparities in accessing quality care amongst cancer survivors.

We welcome original research articles, reviews, and perspectives that contribute to our understanding of survivorship in pediatric oncology. Submissions should align with the scope outlined above and can cover a wide range of topics within the realm of child, adolescent, and young adult cancer survivorship.

Dr. Juan A. Ortega-García
Guest Editor
