The dawn and evolution of immunotherapies have given rise to a new class of cancer survivors whose novel experience with these treatments require new tools and resources in survivorship. However, these patients are not typical candidates for receiving traditional survivorship care plans or resources. Current Commission on Cancer standards do not require cancer programs and practices to provide survivorship services to patients treated with immunotherapies. But the survivorship needs of these patients are many and unique. In particular, managing potential toxicities during and beyond treatment requires coordinated care among multiple providers that is essential for positive outcomes.
