Rehabilitation practitioners (N = 98) indicate it is very important to have specialized therapists and programs for pediatric cancer rehabilitation, yet only 39% of hospitals have a specialized program. Therapists rarely receive education during academic or clinical training on working with children with cancer, resulting in a lack of consistency in services provided across institutions. A pediatric cancer rehabilitation certification program can help promote an evidence-based standard of care.
