CCLG Paediatric Oncology in Developing Countries

Many CCLG members are a part of our Paediatric Oncology in Developing Countries (PODC) group. The Western World can now cure around 80% of children with cancer, but 80% of the world’s children have no access to this treatment.

The group supports individual trainees, junior doctor training and nurse training, as well as various projects in developing countries. Members of the group also have links with individual projects in various countries, including Pakistan, Malawi and Nepal.

Current key projects for the group include:

Supportive care leaflet for parents

The group has produced an information leaflet for parents and children in developing countries, focusing on prevention and treatment of side effects of chemotherapy. This has been translated into several local languages and distributed to hospitals in those countries. The leaflet is also available on the CCLG website. There are now plans to use the information in the leaflet to make a video to run in hospitals and educate parents and patients

Children's Cancer Nurse Training 

The first Foundation Oncology Skills Workshop for Paediatric Nurses took place in Chandigarh, India on the 15-16 February 2014.

Forty three delegates, including 4 junior doctors, attended the workshop. They came from hospitals in Chandigarh, neighbouring cities and states of India and 2 from Nepal. The workshop was a combination of lectures and hands-on skills. For the majority of the delegates this was the first formal educational opportunity specifically related to childhood cancer. They were delighted to receive their certificates which will now form an important part of their portfolio.

The delegates received the talks enthusiastically and there was very good audience participation. The overall feedback was excellent. The workshop was funded by donations from and money donated to the CCLG PODC group fund and a grant from the CCLG.

A further workshop took place in India in November 2014, and we are now starting to plan workshops in other developing countries. To do this, we need your support.
