Survivorship

The number of people living after completion of cancer treatment has increased due to advances in early detection and treatment, and as a result of the population living for longer.

Treatment teams at cancer services across the Grampians region will discuss survivorship planning with people pre-, during and post-treatment, as relevant to the individual.

Helpful information and resources are available through: 

Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre

Cancer Council Victoria

The Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre has developed information, resources and events to help people move from initial treatment to post treatment and beyond, including those receiving maintenance treatments. Whilst they do not provide clinical advice, they connect with a range of providers to enable improved care. Of particular interest to people living with cancer, their families and carers, is a directory of 'Common Survivorship Issues'.
