Cancer survivors often find themselves facing many different challenges caused by cancer or its treatment. Patients transitioning out of active treatment have particular requirements that should be oriented to maintain or improve their overall health and wellness. These include:

  • Screen for and manage loco-regional recurrences and metastatic spread, treatment induced second primary cancers, and sporadic new primary cancers
  • Identify and treat persistent and late-onset side effects of the cancer or its treatment
  • Encourage health promotion activities that can reduce cancer risk, and improve health and overall wellbeing
