EU-CAYAS-NET is excited to announce our policy event “Transition of Care from Pediatric to Adults” which will take place on 27th May from 9:30-14:00 EEST in Vilnius, Lithuania.

This event, co-organized by POLA and the EU-CAYAS-NET project, is focused on improving the transition of care for young cancer survivors from pediatric to adult healthcare. It will bring together key stakeholders including policymakers, healthcare professionals, patient advocates, and young people living with and beyond cancer themselves to discuss best practices, and government initiatives, and develop action plans for a smoother transition for young cancer survivors.
