- The current evidence base to improve the quality of life for cancer survivors, including the identification, prevention, and reduction of long-term toxicities and second malignancies associated with prior cancer treatment.
- Strategies for early integration of psychosocial support in survivorship care.
- Opportunities to overcome challenges in accessing health care and minimizing the financial burden for cancer survivors.
- Implementation models and emerging strategies for coordinated cancer survivorship care in primary and specialty care settings, including the use of survivorship care plans tailored to a patient’s diagnosis and life course.
- Changes in the landscape of cancer survivorship care over the past decade.
The committee will develop the agenda for the workshop sessions, select and invite speakers and discussants, and moderate the discussions. A proceedings of the presentations and discussions at the workshop will be prepared by a designated rapporteur in accordance with institutional guidelines.
