Transforming Cancer Survivorship Through Research and Best Practice

I’m already jotting down questions for the panel of this March 2015 symposium, and looking forward to participating as an observer.

Produced by the University of Cincinnati Cancer Institute Survivorship Program, the event features as speakers the All Stars of Cancer Survivorship: Julia H. Rowland, PhD, Director, NCI Office of Cancer Survivorship; Patricia Ganz, MD – UCLA; Michael Stubblefield, MD – Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center; Kathryn Schmitz, PhD – University of Pennsylvania; Wendy Demark-Wahnefried, PhD, RD – University of Alabama; and, Timothy Ahles, PhD – Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

The program is designed to (1) explore best practices for cancer survivorship as well as the commission on cancer’s national standards for survivorship care plans, (2) define treatment-related effects and research-based strategies to assess and manage the effects, and (3) discuss multispecialty collaboration and system-wide survivorship program implementation.

Here is more information about registration and calls for research abstracts.
