On December 1, 2017, the National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) will host a Patient Advocacy Summit focused on addressing survivorship issues in cancer care. In preparation for the Patient Advocacy Summit, NCCN will conduct an environmental scan of existing and emerging aspects of survivorship cancer care through stakeholder meetings with survivors and various patient advocacy groups to discuss needs, opportunities, and challenges in providing high-quality, patient-centered cancer survivorship care for all. The corresponding patient advocacy summit will report on the findings of the stakeholder meetings and include discussions by the multi-stakeholder, multi-disciplinary larger cancer care community. These stakeholders and their perspectives are needed to have a full understanding of the challenges of survivorship planning to improve the quality of, and access to, cancer care and in addressing post-treatment needs.

A subsequent article of the summit will be published in the Journal of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network―JNCCN.

Please check back often for additional updates regarding the summit. If you have any questions, please contact Katy Winckworth-Prejsnar.
