Cancer Survivorship Research Conference
CDC's Division of Cancer Prevention and Control, in collaboration with National Cancer Institute's Office of Cancer Survivorship, the American Cancer Society's Behavioral Research Center, and the LIVESTRONG Foundation, supports the Cancer Survivorship Research Conference. This biennial meeting brings together researchers, clinicians, cancer survivors, advocates, policymakers, and public health experts to share the latest research and interventions designed to improve the long-term health and quality of life for cancer survivors and their families.
2014 Cancer Survivorship Conference
Planning is underway for this conference. It will be held in Atlanta in June 2014.
2012 Conference: Translating Science to Care
The 6th Biennial Cancer Survivorship Research Conference: Translating Science to Care served as a forum for researchers, clinicians, cancer survivors, advocates, program planners, policy-makers, and public health experts to learn about current and emerging cancer survivorship research.
2010 Conference: Recovery and Beyond
This conference highlighted the latest research on key topics that impact those living with a history of cancer and their caregivers and health providers. Topics included—
- Physical activity, weight status, and survivorship
- Delivering patient-centered care to cancer survivors: the critical role of communication
- Cancer caregiving: understanding and reaching diverse populations
- Fertility and sexuality after cancer
- Survivorship in women of color: promoting equity
2008 Conference: Mapping the New Challenges Supplement
A collection of 14 articles, published in the September 15, 2009 supplement to the journal Cancer, represents the research presented at that conference. This supplement was supported in part by CDC. Each article explores an aspect of the cancer survivorship experience. The supplement offers perspectives on some of the latest findings related to the long-term effects of cancer on survivors, issues confronted by their caregivers and partners, and the challenges faced by their health care providers.
