The Late Effects, Assessment and Follow-Up (LEAF) Clinic offers important health services to a vulnerable population across B.C.: adults who were treated for cancer as children.
Children treated for cancer are at risk for health complications later in life, known as late effects, which change over time.
The LEAF clinic provides information, support and ongoing assessment of late effects. Adult survivors of childhood cancer can meet with a nurse practitioner or physician; discuss their physical and emotional health with a team of experts; get information and advice about past cancer treatments, late effects and any recommended tests; contribute to research about late effects; and more.
