This project was designed to raise awareness of the growing population of adult survivors of cancer, many of whom will be cared for by PCPs, either alone or in partnership with an oncologist. The project team developed a curriculum to educate participating faculty and their trainees in caring for cancer patients from the time of diagnosis, through treatment and for the remainder of their life. The focus was on finding safe and effective ways to transition care from the oncology clinic to primary care for the cancer survivor.
