What is Survivorship?
Survivorship literally means the act of surviving. Cancer survivorship could be defined as surviving after cancer. However, the field of cancer survivorship grew from a recognition that there is more to life after cancer than just surviving.
Cancer Survivorship Team
Our approach brings together a multidisciplinary team of clinicians from across Mass General with expertise in evaluating and addressing the needs of cancer survivors. Our program emphasizes maintaining the close relationships that develop between our patients and their oncology team, strengthening communication and care coordination between the oncology team and primary care, and making sure that all patients have access to specialized survivorship services.
We are focused on research that can improve the lives of patients at Mass General and around the world following the diagnosis of cancer. We are launching new initiatives related to bridging the gaps between primary care and the oncology team and lifestyle interventions that can help patients become healthier in the years after treatment than they were in the years before the cancer was even diagnosed.
To help address the transition from active cancer care to follow-up, or survivorship care, and to help patients recover and thrive after cancer, the Mass General Cancer Center Survivorship Program provides information on common problems you may face after cancer treatment and the resources to help you and your care team.
