Survivorship
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.
Lillie Shockney addresses when survivorship begins, how to assess patients' life goals, and how to ensure that their treatment plan aligns with their priorities and passions. She goes on to share a touching anecdote regarding a former patient and her survivorship plan.
