Cancer Survivorship Program Provides Comprehensive Approach to Care
Cancer survivorship covers the physical, psychosocial and economic issues of cancer from diagnosis and beyond. Cancer survivorship programs focus on the health and well-being of cancer patients beyond diagnosis and treatment. It also includes follow follow-up treatment, long-term effects of treatment and quality of life.
For many, the end of cancer treatment is a time for celebration, but for some there are mixed feelings. Survivors often experience dramatic changes in their lives and may need assistance in moving forward. St. Joseph's/Candler offers a variety of programs and supportive oncology services to help cancer patients along their journey from diagnosis through survivorship.
