23 Nov WisBusiness: UW-Madison Carbone Cancer Center: First ever cancer survivorship care survey in Wisconsin
Cancer survivors often require multifaceted care and support for medical, psychological, and social needs during and after treatment, and not all of those needs are obviously connected to cancer.
To understand the resources available to meet those needs, the Wisconsin Cancer Collaborative recently completed the first survey of its kind examining the care services offered to cancer survivors in Wisconsin’s cancer facilities. Results were published in the Journal of Cancer Survivorship.
A cancer survivor is defined as anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer no matter where they are in the course of their disease. Thanks to treatment advances, the number of cancer survivors is growing – as are their unique and complex needs.
