KHCC Pediatric

Neuro-Oncology Service:

The service was established in 2003-2004 with a twinning program with the Hospital for Sick Children/Toronto. It treats children younger than 18 years of age with CNS tumours in a multidisciplinary team approach. The team consists of pediatric neuro-oncologist, pediatric neurosurgeon, neuro-radiologist, pediatric radiation oncologist, and neuro-pathologist, in addition, to the dedicated clinical nurse coordinators. The service utilizes as well other clinics at KHCC mainly the pediatric ophthalmology and endocrinology clinics besides other services including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and swallow clinic, and child developmental and psychological clinics. In addition, the pediatric palliative care clinic offers help in symptomatic management and end of life care when needed. It is estimated that more than 70% of children diagnosed in Jordan with CNS tumours are seen in the service; whether Jordanians or non-Jordanians. We deliver a comprehensive treatment plan based on well-established protocols to treat different CNS tumours and we get advices on challenging cases from our colleagues at the Hospital for Sick Children through video -teleconferences when needed. These teleconferences extended now to involve other colleagues from nearby countries and establishing a regional network to exchange knowledge and build expertise.
