2 “ We can no longer save people from drowning and then leave them on the dock to cough and splutter on their own in the belief that we have performed all we can” (Mullan 1985)

3  Why has it developed as a concept?  What is NCAT doing to improve people’s experience following a cancer diagnosis?

4  1960’s linked to life after heart attacks  1980’s concept of survivorship appeared in cancer related literature  1990’s autobiographical works (J Diamond, L Armstrong)

6  Cancer rates are increasing  Cancer treatments are improving  More people are surviving cancer  The number of people living with a cancer diagnosis will double in the next 15 years  Oncology’s goal was ‘cure’  Data is improving and importance is being placed on prevalence as well as mortality

7 The current system for follow-up isn’t going to work How will we meet the physical, psychological and social needs?
