Abstract

The delivery of cancer survivorship care has been increasingly recognized as an area of healthcare in need of improvement. Several survivorship care models have previously been described in the literature. Yet, there is growing evidence that current models are both unsustainable for the future and fail to meet the diverse needs of cancer survivors. As a result, there has been an emphasis on developing innovative models of survivorship care that are accessible to patients and improve outcomes. Proposed solutions to address these concerns include enhanced collaboration and communication among care providers as well as incorporating the use of technology for survivorship care delivery. This article reviews existing models of survivorship care and describes future approaches to improve the care of breast cancer survivors.
