80040444 - Cancer Survivorship: Improving Outcomes and Enhancing Patient-Centered Care


Date & Location
Friday, April 28, 2017 9:15 AM - 4:30 PM   Chevy Chase Bank Conference Center, JHH, Baltimore, MD

Overview
DESCRIPTION
Driven by the aging of the U.S. population, earlier detection, and improved treatment modalities, the number of cancer survivors is expected to sharply rise. There are currently 15 million cancer survivors alive in the U.S. today. While many cancer patients will survive their disease well beyond the initial diagnosis and treatment, their medical and psychosocial needs post-treatment are often inadequately handled.

Care for cancer survivors requires multidisciplinary support. There are often many providers involved in the management of a cancer patient after acute treatment. Finding creative ways for these individuals to work together is of critical importance to ensure cancer survivors have access to necessary health and wellness opportunities and potentially improve outcomes. The Johns Hopkins Cancer Survivorship: Improving Outcomes and Promoting Patient- Centered Care symposium is designed to provide health care practitioners a comprehensive overview of the medical and psychosocial aspects of cancer survivorship care, including approaches to clinical management.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This activity is intended for oncologists, primary care providers, nurses, nurse practitioners, health administrators, patient advocates, navigators and allied health professionals.
