Cancer Society survivorship consensus statement

18th November, 2021

As cancer treatments improve more people are living with, through and beyond cancer. Support for these people and their whānau is important.

The Cancer Society, in partnership with the Central Cancer Network and the Cancer Nurses College, developed a cancer survivorship consensus statement for New Zealand. It describes what cancer survivorship is and why a consensus statement is needed. With a strong focus on equity and Te Tiriti o Waitangi, the statement focuses on:

  • quality of life
  • care planning
  • accessing information
  • follow-up and surveillance
  • rehabilitation
  • resilience.

A wide range of representatives were involved in the statement's development.
