We work in partnership with both the multidisciplinary clinical team and the Teenage Cancer Trust Charity for pupils aged 13-24, who have been diagnosed with cancer to ensure that the young person’s education and post-16 planning is considered as part of their stay in hospital.
Every young person who is referred to the Teenager and Young Adult (TYA) Multidisciplinary Team meeting (MDT) has the option to receive support with their education, career and employment. The input that each student requires varies greatly and ranges from physical classroom/teaching time, so that they can continue existing education or re-sit base level qualifications (English & Maths) needed for employment to university applications and careers advice sessions.
The teachers work closely with the TYA Service to ensure the best outcomes for the patients. To enable an integrated model to be achieved, teachers are core members of the MDT meetings. Formal referrals will be made during these meetings.
