Abstract

Advances in the early detection and treatment of cancer have contributed to an increased number of cancer survivors. This article introduces the most recent definition of cancer survivor and the empirical data demonstrating the barriers to optimal quality of life that cancer survivors often face after treatment. The article then describes a novel set of psychosocial interventions used in a community cancer center to overcome those barriers.
