Chronic Disease Survivorship

Basics

Wellness and Prevention

Overview

Chronic disease survivorship includes diagnosis, treatment and time after treatment. Throughout survivorship, there is a focus on quality of life.

For some, it may be difficult to feel like they can “move on” with their lives after diagnosis and treatment. This is because many treatments for chronic disease leave lingering side effects and fears of possible recurrence. Feelings of isolation and being misunderstood may also occur.

Meet with your doctor to discuss all phases of survivorship, for you or a loved one.
