New Principles of Cancer Survivorship support health and wellbeing of people living with cancer

21 August 2017

Cancer Australia has released the Principles of Cancer Survivorship which provides a national framework to guide policy, planning and health system responses to cancer survivorship. This framework focuses on the health and wellbeing of people living with and beyond cancer.
The Principles are designed to complement and support existing activities in survivorship, and underpin national approaches to evidence-based high quality cancer survivorship across the continuum of care. They are supported by intended outcomes and underpinned by elements to achieve personalised care, opportunities for self-management, an emphasis on recognising and incorporating patient experiences, and a focus on the ongoing management, recovery, health and wellbeing during and after cancer treatment.
