Survivorship Care Planning: Beyond Standard 3.3

Survivorship is defined as one who remains alive and continues to function during and after overcoming a serious hardship or life-threatening disease. In cancer, a person is considered to be a survivor from the time of diagnosis until the end of life. This session will review the definition and attributes of being a survivor, what we know about survivors and their needs throughout their cancer journey. Survivorship care planning implications to meet these needs will be described and discussed.

Lecture Objectives:

  • Describe cancer survivorship trends over time
  • Define who is a cancer survivor and identify survivors needs across the cancer continuum
  • Discuss survivorship care planning to address unmet needs
