If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, you’re a cancer survivor – whether you’re being treated now or you’ve finished treatment recently or long ago.
Our Cancer Survivorship Program brings together clinicians and scientists across various disciplines to provide specialized cancer survivorship care to enhance your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
Our multidisciplinary team of scientists in the Survivorship Program ensures evidence-based delivery of survivorship care, and conduct translational research leading to transformative discoveries to improve the lives of cancer patients and survivors.
At Sylvester, clinicians and scientists collaborate across all disciplines to address the multiple components of cancer survivorship, foster specialized cancer survivorship care and research, ensure evidence-based and state-of-the-art survivorship care, and provide comprehensive, coordinated services across the health system.
The Comprehensive Cancer Survivorship Act (CCSA) is a landmark piece of legislation that aims to provide a lifeline to survivors and their families by addressing the entire survivorship continuum of care for this deadly disease. For every survivor, cancer will be a very different and personal experience. This legislation aims to set new standards for survivorship from diagnosis to end of life, ensuring the best and most seamless experience for survivors, and their families and caregivers, throughout their journey. The CCSA will address gaps in survivorship care and develop desperately needed standards to improve the overall patient-centered quality of care and navigation needs that cancer survivors and their families experience.LEARN MORE ABOUT THE COMPREHENSIVE CANCER SURVIVORSHIP ACT (CCSA)
