The team is interdisciplinary, consisting of physicians, nurses, a physiotherapist, a dietitian, a social worker and a psychologist. Referrals are accepted by any member of the team. The presenting problems include adherence issues, behavioural problems, social/emotional needs (e.g., adjustment, depression, coping), pain management, educational concerns, as well as parent difficulties and education.
