ONS Congress Pre-Conference Session
The Survivorship, Rehabilitation, and Quality of Life SIG is sponsoring a Pre-Conference Session entitled: LIFE- Living in the Future Cancer Survivorship Course. This program was designed by Dr. Carol A Rosenberg (Program Director and Founder) and Carol Flanagan (Program Clinical Coordinator) from the NorthShore University HealthSystems to educate healthcare professionals about survivorship care. Program attendees will receive a copy of the comprehensive LIFE cancer survivorship manual (on flash drive) to utilize within their individual practices. Dr. Rosenberg and Ms. Flanagan have presented this program to oncology and primary care providers and received rave reviews!
Following attendance at this session, participants will be able to:
1) Anticipate the needs of the post treatment cancer survivor
2) Identify the problems which may face cancer survivors
3) Address those needs and issues in dynamic partnerships with cancer survivors and their families
