Description


ESO-OECI SYMPOSIUM AND ACADEMY WORKSHOP ON CANCER SURVIVORSHIP
held at the International Psycho-Oncology Society’s 15th World Congress of Psycho-Oncology and Psychosocial Academy


Chair: N. Aaronson, Amsterdam NL


INTRODUCTION
The Symposium on Cancer Survivorship, which will be held during the 15th World Congress of Psycho-Oncology, on 6-8 November 2013, will address a range of physical, psychosocial, behavioral and organizational issues involved in cancer survivorship research and clinical care. Physical health issues to be addressed include long-term symptoms and symptom management (e.g., fatigue, pain, cognitive functioning) and late effects of cancer and its treatment (e.g., disease recurrence, second cancers). Psychosocial issues to be addressed include psychological distress and well-being, sexuality and intimacy, and return to work. Behavioral issues will include lifestyle interventions (e.g., diet, smoking), physical activity programs, and e-health initiatives aimed at enhancing survivor empowerment. Finally, from a health care systems perspective, attention will be paid to models of survivorship care and services.
The Academy Workshop on Cancer Survivorship will be held on either 4 or 5 November 2013 and cover a number of these topics in more detail, and will provide participants greater opportunity to interact and enter into discussion with the symposium speakers/workshop leaders.
