Prof Daniel Kelly - Cardiff University, UK and EONS

Prof Daniel Kelly talks to ecancer at the 8th European Oncology Nursing Society annual meeting in Geneva, April 2012.

Young people will have a different disease journey and are prone to different types of cancer than adults.

Awareness needs to be raised about symptoms in young people.

Specialist teenage cancer units have been set up in the UK funded by charity which include psychosocial care to help patients deal with the emotional aspects as well as treating the cancer effectively.

Diagnostic delay studies and effective models of care can help in the future, bearing in mind that one size doesn't fit all when it comes to cancer care.
