Description

More people than ever are surviving cancer. With that news comes the need for physicians to have a model of care that ensures quality of life beyond cancer. This course will bridge the gap between Oncology and Primary Care to enhance the quality of survivorship.

The intent is to educate healthcare professionals in the components of a survivorship care plan, to provide an overview of the management and surveillance of late effects of cancer and treatment, and to identify psychosocial challenges that affect survivorship in the midst of other chronic conditions.
