As medical cancer treatments become more and more successful, a growing cohort of cancer survivors is emerging. Maintaining effective communication with survivors poses a host of new challenges that have not received much attention in the literature to date. This chapter covers a number of areas relevant to enhancing communication with survivors including: various definitions of who is considered a cancer survivor; prevalence of survivors; key issues faced by cancer survivors; coping strategies, including the use of care plans and clinical practice guidelines; communication challenges with cancer survivors; models for survivorship care and details about communication techniques in the survivorship consultation. It examines the issues that are important for ongoing care and communication with cancer patients who will go on to live post-treatment and require continuity of care for many years.

Keywords:   cancer survivors, communication, coping strategies, survivorship care, cancer patients, care plans, cancer treatments, clinical practice guidelines, consultation
