For more than a century, cancer care had a singular goal―to have the patient survive the disease and its treatment. With that achieved, the treatment team smiled, considering the treatment a success. Times have changed, and thankfully, treatments have changed, too.
I was privileged to chair a task force for the purpose of revisiting this standard and determining what issues lay within it that are barriers to cancer centers being able to achieve it. Upon the creation of such recommended changes, another task force for which I also served, reviewed these recommendations, and, I am pleased to say, approved them. Hot off the press, here is information that you get to hear even before it is announced to accredited facilities.

The George Washington University (GW) Cancer Center's Executive Training on Navigation and Survivorship is a no-cost, innovative program that teaches the nuts and bolts of navigation and survivorship program development and implementation. The program walks participants through interactive presentations, written content that summarizes the latest research and best practices, case studies and customizable activities to create a program plan.
This is part three of a free, interactive three-part webinar series on Survivorship hosted by the American Cancer Society. The webinars will include information about the Commission on Cancer survivorship care planning standard and the role of National Cancer Database data, review of the newly released American Cancer Society cancer survivorship care guidelines and a presentation by healthcare systems implementing survivorship programs.
