Why kids on chemo should go to school (if they can)

  • Dr-Geoff

In this SoundCloud podcast Doctor Geoff talks about why kids on chemo should go to school (if they can).

Doctor Geoff McCowage is a Paediatric Oncologist and Senior Staff Specialist at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. He talks about a range of things including:

  • The fear of our children getting fevers,
  • The difference between viral and bacterial infections and how they are treated,
  • When to go to the hospital,
  • A child using a central line; and
  • What are neutrophils and why are they important.
