Step up your primary care of cancer survivors with tips from Dr Regina Jacob, Assistant Professor of Medicine at Temple University. Care of the cancer patient does not end when their cancer treatment is over, and there is more to a past diagnosis of cancer than surveillance. We discuss cancer survivorship care with Dr. Regina Jacob, including the changing demographics of survivorship, the importance of survivorship care plans, and how survivorship is largely just good primary care.
