Highlights of the 2017 Cancer Survivorship Symposium


Throughout the Cancer Survivorship Symposium, and the ‘Evening for Cancer Survivors and Caregivers’ which preceded it, a key theme was the importance of addressing all the needs of cancer survivors and their families, whether these are symptoms requiring treatment, psychosocial issues requiring intervention or financial difficulties which may impact their ability to remain in follow-up care.
