“Cancer is not just a medical challenge. Survivorship needs involve the entire span of a patient’s physical, emotional, social and financial experience–all of which bear great influence on healing and quality of life. Doctors can and should broaden their view of this disease and form or affiliate with multidisciplinary practices or clinics that can offer a comprehensive approach to survivorship care.”
