Leukemias in Childhood
The knowledge of pediatric hematology oncology diseases is not a specialty that our team has extensive experience in. It is also challenging for providers to keep up to date on the latest in diagnosis and treatment. Staying up to date on the evidence provides for the best quality reports that we produce. We receive cases on every cancer diagnosis and age, so having knowledge shared on specific hematology diagnosis for pediatric patients is critical to produce high quality reports.
The knowledge on treating this type of cancer is limited amongst our team. Our staff have limited experience with hematology oncology, and specifically with pediatrics. This knowledge will lessen the gap and provide for more efficient report production and quality recommendations.
