Adolescent & young adult (AYA) oncology education

Young people with cancer experience a unique range of issues that differ from children and older adults, as the timing of ill-health coincides with a period of critical growth and development.

For healthcare professionals caring for young people and their families, understanding and responding to these issues is essential to support the delivery of high quality care.

The ONTrac at Peter Mac Victorian AYA Cancer Service in collaboration with organisational partners in health, community and tertiary education have developed a range of education and training opportunities for professionals across the health, community and education sectors.

Visit the AYA Education & Training page for more information on these and other initiatives, along with a list of clinical guidelines and other resources by topic.
