Description: With survivorship now recognized as a distinct phase of care in the cancer continuum, the focus turns to surveillance for, and management of, long-term and late effects that occur as a result of cancer and its treatment, as well as the health promotion and prevention of disease strategies that are particularly important for cancer survivors. This conference, featuring speakers who are the leaders in the field of cancer survivorship, covers an important and increasingly relevant gap in the medical education of clinicians who care for cancer survivors. Course Objectives: • Describe common late effects after treatment with chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone therapy and surgery • Identify types of functional and psychosocial issues and how they vary based on time since treatment completion • Demonstrate understanding of the healthcare providers’ role in delivering survivorship care focused on prevention, wellness and evidence-based guidelines for screening • Provide guideline-supported lifestyle recommendations for secondary prevention to cancer survivors regarding sunscreen, diet, obesity, exercise, alcohol and tobacco • Implement a coordinated plan of care/consult with specialty providers to manage medical late effects of cancer when appropriate • Demonstrate understanding of coordinated oncologist and PCP roles in providing care to survivors
