Abstract

This study represents findings from a questionnaire completed before a cancer control workshop by 47 pediatric cancer control stakeholder participants from 27 countries. Respondents reported their knowledge of their country's cancer control plan, their understanding of childhood cancer control priorities in their local setting, and barriers to high-quality pediatric cancer care. Findings reveal a knowledge gap in pediatric oncology professionals' awareness of national cancer control plan existence, with under-recognition of existing plans, and uncertainty regarding whether pediatric cancer was included in the plans. This study supports the potential of a preworkshop needs assessment to inform cancer control planning objectives and a cancer control training agenda.
