Lewis E. Foxhall, MD, on Communication and Coordination of Survivorship Care
2016 Cancer Survivorship Symposium
Lewis E. Foxhall, MD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, summarizes this session in which presenters covered a range of issues, including the medical home, tools to facilitate communication with cancer survivors, EMRs, reimbursement, and coordinating care with primary care providers (Abstract 76 was presented in this session).
Craig E. Pollack, MD, of Johns Hopkins University, discusses a study of survivorship care plans for this special population (Abstract 1).
Christopher J. Recklitis, PhD, MPH, of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discusses these side effects and some practical approaches to managing them with educational, medical, behavioral, and lifestyle interventions.
Mary McCabe, RN, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses various models of delivering survivorship care.
Tara O. Henderson, MD, MPH, of the University of Chicago, summarizes a session on the multidisciplinary approaches to survivors with medical needs beyond cancer treatment.
Kerri M. Winters-Stone, PhD, of Oregon Health and Science University, discusses the results of her study, which showed that, years after treatment, nearly half of women cancer survivors still have symptoms of chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy. The findings may inform rehabilitative programs to prevent falls and injuries (Abstract 130).
