More Americans are surviving cancer than ever. As the number of cancer survivors living years beyond their cancer diagnosis has grown, so has the emphasis on enhancing health and quality of life before, during and after cancer treatment. Cancer survivors are at risk for physical, psychosocial and practical impacts from cancer and its treatment, and it is essential that they have comprehensive follow-up care after treatment ends.

This toolkit provides resources to help with implementing American Cancer Society cancer survivorship care guidelines for colorectal, head and neck and prostate cancers and the American Cancer Society/American Society of Clinical Oncology cancer survivorship care guideline for breast cancer.
