American Cancer Society releases survivorship care guidelines for colorectal cancer survivors
the ONA take:
The American Cancer Society (ACS) has released its second in a series of cancer survivorship care guidelines. These guidelines provide recommendations to primary care clinicians for providing comprehensive care to survivors of colorectal cancer.
The new guidelines offer recommendations for identifying and managing potential physical and psychosocial long-term and late effects of colorectal cancer and its treatment, including screening for recurrence and early detection of second primary cancers.
A multidisciplinary team reviewed relevant literature and publicly available clinical practice guidelines from the United States and around the world to develop the survivorship guidelines in a process that follows the model used to develop screening guidelines. As is done with screening guidelines, ACS will update its survivorship care guidelines every 5 years as new research is available.
New guidelines address long-term needs of colorectal cancer survivors
