Survivorship

Australian Cancer Surviorship Centre

The Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre, a Richard Pratt Legacy is a peak body for supporting and enabling excellent survivorship care. Our vision is to optimise the health and wellbeing of cancer survivors and their carers. ACSC is focused primarily on the post-treatment phase of survivorship, but operates with the understanding that survivorship begins at the point of diagnosis and spans across the entire cancer journey.

Cancer Council - Survivors' guide

Cancer Council have created two information booklets for people who've finished active treatment for cancer, such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy. They're about the emotional, physical, practical and social challenges that you may face now treatment is over. These challenges will vary depending on the type of cancer you were diagnosed with and the treatment you received.

Journey Forward

Journey Forward was developed in response to the 2005 IOM report 'From Cancer Patient to Cancer Survivor: Lost in Transition', which stated that every cancer survivor should receive a Survivorship Care Plan after treatment. Our early research confirmed the benefits to patients and healthcare professionals. So, we set about developing concrete solutions for the problems cancer survivors and their healthcare providers face. The result was an adaptable, complimentary suite of survivorship care planning tools that are setting a new standard in survivorship care.
