Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Due to earlier diagnosis and more effective treatment, increasing numbers of people can be expected to live with and beyond cancer. Yet for many, survival might be characterised by physical and psychological morbidity, decreased functional status and disability, which may increase as the length of time from the completion of treatment extends. However, careful integrated assessment and relevant and acceptable care planning can mitigate these effects; people can be helped and supported in self-management and ultimately enabled to live full and productive lives in a manner that is acceptable to them.
