Survivorship is the next big challenge in oncology that requires significant programmatic changes by cancer centers everywhere. The three main objectives are to address a full range of physical and psychosocial needs as patients transition to the post-treatment period, improve communication between oncologists and primary care providers, and comply with the 2012 Program Standards of the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. Whether you see 50 or 5000 cancer patients a year, your cancer center needs to develop these services.
