research on the biology, treatment and cure of cancers has flourished,
relatively modest efforts have addressed outcomes of cancer and its
treatment in general or long-term survivorship outcomes in particular. This
is in sharp contrast to the body of evidence increasingly demonstrating that
most people treated for cancer need preemptive medical and psychosocial
management to address the medical, emotional, social and economic effects of
their illness. These effects of cancer and its treatment are multifaceted
and interrelated (30).
