Appendix A

Statement of Task

An ad hoc committee will plan and host a 1.5-day public workshop to examine the evidence for potential actions to improve the planning, management, and delivery of cancer survivorship care. The workshop will feature invited presentations and panel discussions on topics that may include

  • An overview of the health risks and late effects experienced by cancer survivors.
  • 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 2006 Institute of Medicine (IOM) consensus study report From Cancer Patient to Cancer Survivor: Lost in Transition made recommendations to improve the quality of care that cancer survivors receive, in recognition that cancer survivors are at risk for significant physical, psychosocial, and financial repercussions from cancer and its treatment. Since then, efforts to recognize and address the unique needs of cancer survivors have increased, including an emphasis on improving the evidence base for cancer survivorship care and identifying best practices in the delivery of high-quality cancer survivorship care.

To examine progress in cancer survivorship care since the Lost in Transition report, the National Cancer Policy Forum of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held a workshop in July 2017, in Washington, DC. Workshop participants highlighted potential opportunities to improve the planning, management, and delivery of cancer survivorship care. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
