About this Webinar Course

This webinar course has been previously recorded.

Cancer survivorship is an important topic for nurses and members of the care team who care for patients with cancer. Survivor rates continue to improve, most notably for breast cancer. This webinar course discusses why survivorship is an essential element of the overall plan of care, the importance of focusing on the patient’s quality of life, both during and after treatment, and recognizing the challenges many patients encounter when they finish treatment and consequently lose access to key services and ways to address them. Through evidence-based information, professional and personal experiences of the presenter, and case study discussions, learners will appreciate the value of this topic and gain an appreciation for a patient’s life plan when faced with a cancer diagnosis.
