Stanford Cancer Survivorship Program

At the Stanford Cancer Center, we provide supportive care during treatment, but understand that the cancer experience doesn't end with completion of intensive therapy. Some cancer-related issues can continue for years following treatment. In 2012, we opened the Stanford Cancer Survivorship Program to help our cancer survivors' transition from diagnosis to wellness through a variety of services and clinical care from our multidisciplinary team of survivorship experts.

Care and Treatment at Stanford Cancer Survivorship Program

Cancer Survivorship Program

Cancer Survivorship is more than surviving cancer. It starts from the time of diagnosis, continues after treatment and includes individuals who experience cancer as well as family, friends and caregivers.

More people today are surviving cancer than ever before thanks to advances in detection, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up in cancer care. One in twenty adults in the US is a cancer survivor—numbers that have quadrupled since the 1970s. The need for long-term follow up care has grown with the numbers to address the ongoing issues that cancer and treatment present.

Cancer Survivorship starts from the time of diagnosis through post-treatment and includes individuals who experience cancer as well as family, friends, and caregivers. Stanford's Cancer Survivorship Program helps people transition from cancer diagnosis to wellness by providing support services and evidence-based medical care, including:

  • Innovative education and resources
  • Comprehensive clinical care from a team of experts
  • Research studies on quality of life and survivorship

Once treatment ends, we realize the cancer experience continues. The Cancer Survivorship Program includes clinic visits with nurse practitioners and physician assistants, whose expertise includes cancer care and the specific issues survivors may face years after treatment. They offer methods to maintain and promote health during the transition from cancer treatment to wellness and work in conjunction with oncologists and other team members to provide the best possible care after treatment.
