The SIOP Supportive Care Network aims to address global supportive care issues for children, adolescents and young adults with cancer.

Supportive care is defined as “the prevention and management of the adverse effects of cancer and its treatment, which means managing the side effects of cancer and cancer treatment. Supportive care includes management of physical and psychological symptoms and side effects,  managing psychosocial issues, across the continuum of the cancer experience from diagnosis through treatment to post-treatment care.  Supportive care aims to improve the quality of life,  secondary cancer prevention, survivorship, and end-of-life care.
