Abstract

The Dutch BETER consortium has established a national care infrastructure for Hodgkin lymphoma survivors. 'BETER' [the Dutch word for 'better'] stands for Better care after Hodgkin lymphoma (HL): Evaluation of long-term Treatment Effects and screening Recommendations. The survivorship care focuses on long-term effects of HL treatment. Over 10,000 HL survivors who were treated in the period spanning 1965-2008 have been identified. As part of the survivorship care initiative, specific BETER out-patient clinics have been set up. A dedicated website, www.beternahodgkin.nl, provides HL survivors with relevant information. The stakeholders of the BETER survivorship care programme aim to achieve an improved healthy life expectancy for patients treated for HL.
