Description

The highly complex nature of hematology disorders and cancer care in children requires a well-coordinated, multidisciplinary team approach.

Children’s Mercy takes a holistic approach looking at the whole child to ensure that each child is meeting with every professional resource needed to manage the disease.

Every patient is assigned a case manager, usually an advanced practice nurse or physician’s assistant, teamed with a social worker and hematology/oncology specialist who oversees each child’s case from diagnosis through follow-up care.

The child has the same team throughout their entire treatment.

Gerald M. Woods, MD is here to discuss hematology disorders and cancer care in children.
