Commissioner's Medical Grand Rounds: Caring for Patients Living with and Beyond Cancer

In New York State, over one million estimated cancer survivors are living with and beyond a diagnosis of cancer. The number of cancer survivors is increasing, yet this population continues to experience gaps in care. Primary care providers have a role to play in improving the quality of life for cancer survivors. This Grand Rounds session will help primary care providers understand the long-term impact of cancer treatment on their patients and their continuing physical and mental health care needs by providing access to timely and evidence-based information. Three experts in cancer survivorship will discuss how to identify and manage commonly experienced physical and psychosocial effects of cancer and its treatment, as well as best practices for coordinating survivorship care between oncology specialists and primary care providers.
