Description

The hematology/oncology (hem/onc) program at JJCCC’s Hematology/Oncology Center provides tertiary level specialty care for infants, children and adolescents with cancer and blood related disorders. Many children seen in this center have Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL), Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML), Wilms’ Tumor, Neuroblastoma, Astrocytoma, Carcinomas and Sarcomas.

The JJCCC core hem/onc team includes the pediatric hematologist/oncologist, a clinical nurse specialist, social worker, dietician, clinical psychologist and pediatric dentists. When needed, pediatric sub-specialists, surgeons, pharmacists, pathologists, respiratory care practitioners and occupation, speech and physical therapists join the team.
The most common types of treatments for children in the Hematology/Cncology Center are radiotherapy and chemotherapy. The hem/onc team meets to review clinical cases and make recommendations on the type of therapy and other care that is most appropriate for each patient.


Company description
In partnership with the Children’s Oncology Group, children also can be enrolled in clinical trials to have access to leading therapies and treatments. The hem/onc care team and the hematologist/oncologist discuss this with the family when there is a clinical trial available that fits the individual patient’s needs.
The hem/onc care team offers multi-specialty medical care, including assessment, consultation, treatment and preventative care. Developmental screening and psychological evaluation are tools the hem/onc team uses to ensure the condition and treatment plan is being managed appropriately. The hematologist/oncologist acts as a consult for any patient that is hospitalized with a pediatric hematology/oncology condition.
Psychosocial programs such as family support, education, community support and school reintegration are weaved into the condition management of the child. The STAR Late Effects Program is an important part of the follow-up care for a child in the Hematology/Oncology Center, because it ensures that a child is progressing in developmental and cognitive growth even after the side effects of treatment. Screenings, diagnostic testing and neuropsychological tests can be ordered to ensure that there aren’t negative, long-term effects on patients who received chemotherapy, radiotherapy or blood transfusions.
The Hematology/Oncology Center at JJCCC is a California Children’s Services (CCS) approved Special Care Center (SCC). This means a specially designated multidisciplinary care team is responsible for all care coordination and case management of a patient in this program. Patients typically qualify for the Hematology/Oncology CCS Special Care Center by medical diagnosis, complexity of their disease and financial status.
The Stroke Program at JJCCC provides comprehensive assessment and treatment for children and infants who suffer from strokes and employ preventative measures for children who are at-risk for stroke.
