SurvivorshipConf_Masthead_UCCI_9-14

In the United States, about 14.5 million individuals are cancer survivors. Cancer survivors often experience short- and long-term physical and psychosocial morbidities related to their treatment. Developing interventions to address these morbidities has become a unique field of cancer care. As with any new burgeoning specialty, education of those who provide care is a priority. Knowledge of current research and standards of care relevant to cancer survivors is imperative.
