The growing number of cancer survivors presents a new challenge to generalists and specialists involved in their care. Prior cancer treatments may compound known comorbidities or contribute to future health risks. The ultimate success of cancer treatments ultimately depends on the meticulous management of post-cancer care, and this requires a clinical workforce that is engaged and ready. Cancer survivorship has now become recognized as an independent field of research and clinical practice. This new concise guide is intended for cancer clinicians as well as generalists and specialists who meet cancer survivors in their practices for routine check-ups or specialized consultations. With an expanding population known to have complex medical, psychosocial and emotional needs, we hope this book sparks interest and provides answers for those involved in their care.
