New Survivorship Recommendations Published In Oral Oncology

The manuscript was completed by an expert panel as part of the Make Sense campaign

We are delighted to let you know that the first ever head and neck cancer survivorship recommendations for a European setting have been published in Oral Oncology!
This publication is a revision of the American Cancer Society (ACS) 2015 recommendations for Head and Neck Survivorship Care. The purpose of the revision was to address an important need for up-to-date guidelines specific to the current European landscape, and to outline best practices for the European head and neck cancer survivor population.

These recommendations:

  • Highlight the essential need for head and neck cancer survivorship care to follow a multidisciplinary approach
  • Strengthen the call to consider the need for strong psychosocial support in line with the range of adverse effects and personal consequences that HNC survivors may be managing
  • Encourage treatment that is individual to the survivor, reflecting the diverse consequences of head and neck cancer

The manuscript was completed by an expert panel as part of the Make Sense campaign. This project has been a long-standing goal of the Campaign and today we are incredibly grateful to the authors, the European Cancer Patient Coalition (ECPC) and all others who contributed, for their dedicated support and input to develop this publication.
