ACCC partnered with the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS) on the Elevating Survivorship project. With this project, NCCS and ACCC hope to build on the increasing demand for patient involvement in all aspects of healthcare and, specifically, to empower patients and patient advocates to engage with their healthcare providers to improve cancer survivorship care at the local level.
ACCC conducted a web-based survey to learn about gaps in survivorship care delivery, technical support needed to improve survivorship care, and unmet and evolving survivorship care needs of patients who have been treated with immunotherapy.
Results and analysis of these two national surveys were published in the Oncology Issues (May/June 2019). Read Elevating Survivorship: Results from Two National Surveys.
