In this month’s #BCCEU Twitter chat we will be discussing what Marie learned at the Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer 2013 Survivorship Conference, a unique event which brought together clinicians, researchers and survivors to address the issues facing cancer survivors and the priorities for survivorship care and research.
Speakers from around the world shared their insights into the most exciting developments in the field of cancer survivorship. The wide wide range of topics discussed ranged from the clinical perspective on cancer survivorship, the challenges facing survivors, dealing with fear of recurrence, the psycho-social and physical effects of cancer, the impact of cancer on caregivers , how to stay healthy for the long term with life style changes such as diet and exercise and much more. It was a great opportunity to meet with and talk to experts in the field of survivorship and for survivors to share their perspective on really matters to us.
