Abstract: Cancer survivors are at risk for recurrences, new cancers, and late and long-term effects of cancer treatments. Health promotion and management of comorbid conditions remain a standard of care for cancer survivors. Nurse practitioners should collaborate with oncology specialists using a shared-care model in delivering survivorship care.
