TACTIC 

 

The TACTIC (Thriving After Cancer Treatment Is Complete) clinic is a unique collaborative endeavor by the University of Colorado Hospital's Department of Internal Medicine, Children's Hospital Colorado, and the University of Colorado Cancer Center.

 

The clinic aims to assist adult survivors of childhood cancer and their health care providers in understanding the clinical late effects and risks from cancer treatment as well as the impact on the emotional well-being. The clinic can also serve in transitioning health care from the pediatric realm to adult care.


The TACTIC clinic is dedicated to promoting preventative care and healthy behaviors for adult survivors of childhood cancer who may face "late effects" of treatment that include:

  • Heart failure related to chemotherapy
  • Neuro-cognitive deficits
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Fertility issues
  • Endocrine problems


Patients attending the TACTIC clinic receive:

  • An assessment of past cancer treatment and late effects by a pediatric oncologist from Children’s Hospital Colorado
  • An overall health evaluation by a general internal medicine physician from the University Of Colorado Hospital
  • A psychosocial evaluation by a psychologist
  • An educational overview of late effects and resources by an oncology nurse
  • A treatment summary and survivorship care plan that summarizes cancer treatment information and TACTIC team recommendations for follow-up appointments, screenings and surveillance.

 

About the clinic


The clinic meets on the first Thursday of each month in the hospital's Department of Internal Medicine, located on the fifth floor of the Anschutz Outpatient Pavilion (see maps and locations).
