Survivorship

Description

Chairs: V. Mattioli, IT - N. Aaronson, NL


Improvement in cancer survival rates has increased longevity but has also revealed physical and psycho-social sequelae of long-term survivorship and raised many questions regarding how to assess, treat, and prevent these survival-related problems. For these reasons, cancer survivors often have medical, psychosocial, emotional, cognitive, physical, spiritual and economic sequelae that negatively affect their quality of life. It is estimated that late effects and long-term sequelae of cancer and its therapies are present in about 75% of long-term survivors but there is limited information about the exact incidence and prevalence of many physical late effects.
This event is firstly focused on deepening the state of the research in Europe and in the USA about many issues such as Ageing, Comorbidity, Symptoms, Psychosocial Health, Rehabilitation and Physical Activity.
Secondly, the conference will offer the opportunity to compare European with American knowledge and practice in cancer survivorship, and to create/improve a European study group on this research field.
The occasion should be favorable for looking for common strategies and policies to meet the unmet needs of cancer survivors, which sometimes differ depending on the country, culture, and health system.
