Emma works at the Royal Marsden Hospital, London supporting young people and their families as they prepare for adult life following completion of treatment for childhood cancer.
She has implemented nurse led clinics and a structured transition program for patients moving to supported self-management in the community or specialist hospital based adult care. Key to this is ensuring every young person is offered a treatment summary and individualised care plan for long term follow up.
Emma’s interests lie in communicating with young people about things that matter to them, motivating self-care /behaviour change, peer support and transition. She is a member of the CCLG UK late effects group, International Guideline Harmonisation psychosocial working group, SIOPEN N QoL – Long Term Outcome group and volunteers with the Solving Kids Cancer UK helping to organise their breakout sessions for parents and survivors.
