Abstract

The discipline of cancer survivorship has evolved as a result of the concerted effort of survivors, supported by clinicians and researchers aiming to address the unmet needs of survivors resulting from cancer and its treatment. Nearly 30 years later, there is much to celebrate, but still much to be done. Delivering quality cancer care to survivors is not just about delivering good cancer care, but rather improving overall health care for the growing numbers of people affected by cancer. Ensuring that care is evidence-based, cost-effective and adaptable to different health settings remains a constant challenge in the continuingly changing health care environment. International collaborations have potential for strategic advancement of the field through data sharing, priority setting and large scale research initiatives to make a lasting impact at the population level.
