Mary McCabe, director, Cancer Survivorship Initiative, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses the evolution of survivorship care.

McCabe says that awareness of survivorship care has grown as the number of cancer survivors has increased. Previous oncology care models did not include a formal period of care for survivors, she adds.

McCabe says that providers are now working to extend the continuum of care to include the post-treatment period in diverse settings such as academic medical centers, community hospitals, and private practices.
