NSW/QLD Rural Childhood Cancer Management Program/ The Management of the Febrile Child with Cancer. A joint research project between Prof Glenn Marshall (Kids Cancer Centre, Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick) & A/Prof Andrew Hallahan (Royal Children’s Hospital Brisbane). This is a pilot project using a select group of regional centres across New South Wales and Queensland to audit the current system of cancer management for patients with side effects from their treatment. The goal is to devise a safer protocol for any treating doctor in a peripheral centre to provide the correct treatment program for patients.
