Most adults and children diagnosed with cancer will live at least 5 years following diagnosis.

These improved outcomes have spurred research and funding opportunities in several areas including:

  • Late and chronic effects of cancer and its treatments
  • Psychosocial implications of cancer and its treatments
  • Lifestyle choices and behaviors of survivors following cancer treatment
  • Interventions to improve health outcomes after cancer and its treatment
  • Impact of cancer on families

Primary care providers have an important role in guiding cancer patients to enroll in clinical trials that may enhance our understanding about these issues.
