EM1908E "Cancer Survivorship Care: Instructions Not Included!" (IM GR-080919)

Purpose and Overview:
Cancer survivors constitute a rapidly expanding part of the US population. Considering the long-term and late effects of cancer / cancer treatment, care of cancer survivors poses a public health challenge. Existing and emerging data suggest significant gaps in knowledge, research, and care of cancer survivors. Despite efforts by professional organizations, government agencies and patient advocacy groups over the past 3 decades, cancer survivorship care remains fragmented and often inadequate. This review is intended to raise healthcare providers’ awareness of the unique needs of cancer survivors, and challenges in implementation of cancer survivorship programs.
