Staff of the National Cancer Survivorship Resource Center (The Survivorship Center) and over 100 volunteer survivorship experts from around the country have come together to find ways to improve the care cancer survivors receive and improve the overall health and well-being of survivors.

In Year One, the experts focused on creating action plans in four areas specific to cancer survivorship: Quality of Life: Information Delivery; Quality of Life: Programs and Navigation; Systems, Policy and Practice: Clinical Survivorship Care; and Policy and Advocacy.
