Updated Leukemia Learning Hub on AboutKidsHealth
AboutKidsHealth (AKH) has recently updated its Leukemia Learning Hub! Visit this section of the website to learn more about how leukemia is diagnosed and treated today. This learning hub offers in-depth information in English and French about acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML), with articles such as:
- Acute lymphoblastic leukemia: risk categories
- Chemotherapy for acute childhood leukemias
- Chemotherapy phases for ALL and AML
May 15-21 is also National Road Safety Week, which aims to raise awareness of unsafe driving behaviours that put drivers, passengers and pedestrians at risk. AKH’s article on pedestrian safety for children provides pedestrian and school road safety tips, and breaks down the three
important skills a child should develop before they can walk alone. You can also visit AKH to learn more about how car use affects children and ways to encourage active transportation.
AboutKidsHealth is SickKids’ redesigned patient education website, which offers more than 3,500 articles, illustrations and videos on a range of paediatric health topics. For more information on Leukemia, road safety and other topics, visit www.aboutkidshealth.ca.
