National Cancer Survivorship Resource Center
The National Cancer Survivorship Resource Center (The Survivorship Center) is a collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the George Washington Cancer Institute funded by a 5-year cooperative agreement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Its goal is to shape the future of cancer survivorship care and improve the quality of life of cancer survivors as they transition from treatment to recovery. Here you will find information about the progress The Survivorship Center has made within the past year and resources that have been developed for cancer survivors, health care professionals, and the policy and advocacy community. Check back often, because the information and resource sections will continue to grow.
Staff of the National Cancer Survivorship Resource Center (The Survivorship Center) and over 100 volunteer survivorship experts from around the country have come together to find ways to improve the care cancer survivors receive and improve the overall health and well-being of survivors. The materials below explain in greater detail the year one activities of The Survivorship Center. The experts focused on creating action plans in four areas specific to cancer survivorship: Quality of Life: Information Delivery; Quality of Life: Programs and Navigation; Systems, Policy and Practice: Clinical Survivorship Care; and Policy and Advocacy.
This white paper was written to educate policy makers on these issues and describe the priority areas for improving survivorship care.
