1. What a Difference a Small Group Can Make

A published article and a grassroots organization set the stage for cancer survivorship, both as a phenomenon and a movement. This chapter describes how a small group of survivors impacted the national scene with a perspective that individuals diagnosed with cancer are survivors and not victims.

2. Landmark Reports that Advanced Survivorship Care

The National Academy of Medicine, formerly called the Institute of Medicine, published reports that addressed cancer care in the US. In particular, this chapter addresses a seminal report with ten recommendations provided by the foundation for addressing survivorship as part of the cancer care continuum.

3. The Development of Survivorship Care Standards and Guidelines

Following the publication of landmark reports, cancer-related organizations developed standards of survivorship care and guidelines that addressed the physical and psychosocial effects associated with cancer treatment. These organizations are comprised of accrediting bodies and those that develop evidence-based guidelines regarding major treatment-related effects. This chapter provides an overview of these important organizations.

4. Health Care Response to the Increasing Number of Survivors

The number of cancer survivors is increasing due to advances in early detection and treatment. With this increase in the number of survivors and their longevity, a multidisciplinary approach is essential to addressing the late and long-term effects of treatment in this population. This chapter presents ways to address the impact the increased number of cancer survivors will have on the health care system.
