ABSTRACT

Title:  The person, cancer survivorship and personally meaningful outcomes.

Summary:  There are increasing numbers of people surviving cancer and many living with long-term consequences and challenges. Improving our understanding of and supporting cancer survivors to achieve optimal physical, psychological and social outcomes is a priority.

To maximise the impact of these endeavours, a careful consideration of what are personally meaningful outcomes for people affected by cancer and how we can meaningfully assess them to improve the lives of those affected by cancer is required.

This talk will consider these challenges and in doing so will draw on recent research illustrating the psychological, social, cognitive, and environmental factors and impact involved in managing and living with and beyond cancer and its consequences.
