From Johns Hopkins: Driven by the aging of the U.S. population, earlier detection, and improved treatment modalities, the number of cancer survivors is expected to sharply rise. There are currently 15 million cancer survivors alive in the U.S. today. While many cancer patients will survive their disease well beyond the initial diagnosis and treatment, their medical and psychosocial needs post-treatment are often inadequately handled.
Care for cancer survivors requires multidisciplinary support. There are often many providers involved in the management of a cancer patient after acute treatment. Finding creative ways for these individuals to work together is of critical importance to ensure cancer survivors have access to necessary health and wellness opportunities and potentially improve outcomes. The Johns Hopkins Cancer Survivorship: Improving Outcomes and Promoting Patient- Centered Care symposium is designed to provide health care practitioners a comprehensive overview of the medical and psychosocial aspects of cancer survivorship care, including approaches to clinical management.
