This presentation covers the continuum of care from diagnosis including the physical, psychosocial, and economic issues of cancer. It focuses on the health and life of a person with cancer beyond the diagnosis and treatment phases. Survivorship includes issues related to follow-up treatment, late effects of treatment, second cancers, and quality of life. Family members, friends, and caregivers are also part of the survivorship experience and are welcome to attend.
