The Late Effects, Assessment and Follow-Up (LEAF) Clinic is for adults who have survived childhood cancer.
BC Cancer and BC Children's Hospital have created the Adult Childhood Cancer Survivors (ACCS) Program for childhood cancer survivors. This program provides long-term follow up and surveillance of late effects for survivors, provides support and education to primary care providers with adult childhood cancer survivor patients, and collects data for research on late effects of childhood cancer.
As part of this program, the Late Effects, Assessment and Follow-up (LEAF) Clinic is open to ensure that adult cancer survivors are getting the best care.
Improved cancer treatments have significantly increased the amount of children that are surviving into adulthood. With those increasing numbers, our understanding about the effect that their treatment has on their overall health and quality of life has also grown. We now know that children treated for cancer face an 80% chance of late effects from their treatment later in life.
We are currently recalling adult childhood cancer survivors and inviting them to attend the LEAF clinic. For more information on recall, please contact us at 604-877-6070 or toll free 1-844-677-6070.
