In 2015, a support initiative for adolescents and young adults with cancer, Kræftværket, was created at Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen University Hospital in Denmark. The primary objective of Kræftværket is to provide youth-friendly support, care, and treatment practices. As Kræftværket provides services to both pediatric and adult departments, a network between patients who would otherwise not interact has been created. The initiative is managed by a Youth Coordinator, and specifically trained health professional Youth Ambassadors. Dedicated staff, including Youth Coordinator and the Youth Ambassadors, are essential in maintaining focus on current initiatives for this patient group.
