National Guidelines - Paediatric Oncology and Haematology Disclaimer
The National Child Cancer Network has prepared a set of national guidelines for the supportive care and management of children with cancer throughout New Zealand. They provide guidance for shared care centres that manage the complications of childhood cancer and chemotherapy and aim to harmonise treatment across the country.
These guidelines are not intended to replace consultation with the paediatric oncologist at the child's specialist cancer centre. If there is an uncertainty about the guidance provided, you should discuss your queries with your paediatric oncologist on call.
The prescribing information in these guidelines is for health professionals only. It is not intended to replace consultation with the paediatric oncologist at the child's specialist cancer centre. For information on cautions, contra-indications and side effects refer to BNF for Children latest edition. While great care has been taken to see that the information in this section is accurate, the user is advised to check the doses carefully.
No set of guidelines can cover all variations required for specific patient circumstances. It is the responsibility of the health care practitioners using them to adapt them for safe use within their institutions and for the individual needs of patients. See Full Disclaimer.
