More possibilities for home chemotherapy for children

De Meern, May 09, 2017

Breakthrough collaboration by Emma Children's Hospital AMC, KinderThuisZorg and Mediq Children treated for cancer at Emma Children's Hospital AMC in Amsterdam have, in the context of a pilot, been given the opportunity to receive chemotherapy at home. For this purpose, specialist pediatric oncology nurses employed by KinderThuisZorg visited the children at home to determine whether their physical condition allowed the administration of chemotherapy. Mediq ensured safe delivery of the chemotherapy administration system and the medication that is prepared by Emma Children’s Hospital AMC. "Children and their parents need to go to the hospital less often for chemotherapy. This makes the treatment less stressful," says Dr. Marianne van de Wetering, pediatric oncologist and chef de clinique pediatric oncology at Emma Children's Hospital AMC, who supervised this pilot with specialist pediatric oncology nurse Charlotte Beukhof.
