There are now more than 15 million cancer survivors in the United States, and while many of them are in remission, cancer survivorship continues to be an important part of the cancer journey. UnityPoint Health has brought together a team of experts and community resources to offer cancer survivors the support they need following treatment.
Survivorship Services Include:
- Review your cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Discuss typical surveillance protocols to watch for recurrence.
Personalized information on short-term and long-term side effects that might be anticipated based on treatment received.
Receive a document summarizing the entirety of your cancer "journey" from diagnosis to treatment. This is for patients to have for their records, and can also be shared with other healthcare providers.
Meet with an oncology social worker to help assess your supportive and practical needs as you transition into survivorship.
