Delivering Survivorship Care
in North Carolina


Lecture Description

An aging population, a growing number of cancer survivors, and a projected shortage of cancer care providers will result in a challenge in delivering the care for cancer survivors in the United States if systemic changes are not made, according to a commentary in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Dr. Mayer will discuss these issues with particular consideration to providing cancer survivorship care in North Carolina.

Learning Objectives:

  • Analyze cancer survivorship trends and define cancer survivorship
  • Describe unmet needs of cancer survivors and identify the components of survivorship
  • Outline current and evolving models of survivorship care
