Date of Review: October 2014

Method of Review: The Evidence Based Practice Protocol Review Subcommittee conducted a group review of the clinical guideline, followed by voting to arrive at a consensus recommendation. Because this protocol has been endorsed by the American Society of Clinical Oncology which conducted a review utilizing the AGREE criteria, the subcommittee felt that completing a second AGREE review was not necessary and an expedited review was conducted.

Review Summary: This protocol is written specifically for the pediatric population.

Recommendation for use: Recommended without modifications- suitable for pediatric patients.
