What is Survivorship?

As mentioned in an earlier post on follow-up care, the National Cancer Survivorship Resource Center has put together a handy toolkit for patients and clinicians to understand and explain the needs of cancer survivors.  You can find that toolkit here.   In addition to the toolkit, George Washington University has prepared a wonderful slideshow explaining what survivorship means and why it is important for patients and clinicians to learn about.  It is full of interesting facts, trends and issues to consider.

Patient Ahead encourages all patients and patient support folks to take a look at this great presentation.  You can the presentation here.

Have fun!
