Survivor and Doctor

Course description

With survivorship now recognized as a distinct phase of care in the cancer continuum, the focus turns to surveillance for, and management of, long-term and late effects that occur as a result of cancer and its treatment, as well as the health promotion and prevention of disease strategies that are particularly important for cancer survivors.

This conference, featuring speakers who are the leaders in the field of cancer survivorship, covers an important and increasingly relevant gap in the medical education of clinicians who care for cancer survivors.
