There are 12 million cancer survivors in the US. The consequences of a cancer diagnosis & treatment present tremendous challenges for survivors and their health care providers. The IOM, NCI, & multiple advocacy groups have responded with recommendations for an organized approach to survivorship care. The emphasis on cancer survivorship necessitates a paradigm shift to meet the unique needs of survivors. Health care providers must learn new information & adopt care delivery models that will ensure optimal outcomes. Concepts related to personalized health care must be incorporated into the cancer trajectory & tailored to the individual. The genomic basis of cancer must be understood to optimize the effect of interventions. The RN & APN are vital to the success of cancer survivorship care initiatives. RNs can create individualized cancer survivorship care plans based on key aspects of personalized health care & evidence-based practice. APNs can manage symptoms, screen for cancer recurrence & second primaries, & promote wellness and healthy lifestyle behaviors. Cancer survivorship projects funded by Komen For the Cure & Oncology Nursing Society provided survey data from nurses working in central, south central, & southeastern Ohio, including a large sector of Appalachian counties. These nurses voiced a strong responsibility to provide cancer survivorship care. Gaps in knowledge were identified, as well as barriers to effective implementation of evidence-based care. These survey data indicated a need for education of nurses across the care continuum in multiple settings. A professional commitment is crucial to the success of cancer survivorship care. The initial models of care centered on physician-provided care. Subsequent models have evidenced that nurses can provide comparable, if not improved survivorship care. The educational preparation of nurses must occur at multiple levels, including undergraduate and graduate nursing programs, and continuing education for those in practice. Innovative approaches to nursing education will enhance the quality of education provided & broaden the base of opportunities. Nurses must embrace this challenge & responsibly affect change.
