You Survived (Breast) Cancer: What Next?
Join Dr. Josie van Londen for an overview of issues relevant to the management of breast cancer survivors including breast cancer survival trends, symptoms, recurrence, and participation in UPMC's Cancer Survivorship Program.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Improve management of cancer surveillance testing in breast cancer survivors, which will allow more appropriate utilization of health care
- Improve (multi-disciplinary) management of cancer survivor's symptoms, which will allow more appropriate utilization of health care and improve survivor's quality of life (and survival)
- Implement encouragement of health behavior improvements, which will improve overall and likely cancer related outcomes
