Cancer survivorship starts when a person is diagnosed with cancer and continues through the cancer journey and beyond. As a cancer survivor, your journey of cancer survivorship also includes your caregivers and loved ones who care for you. Once treatment is completed, in addition to looking out for side effects related to treatment and regular monitoring by your physician to detect recurrence, it is important that you stay well and… live well!
Working closely with our primary care providers, the NCIS Cancer Survivorship Programme launched in July 2018, focuses on follow-up cancer care for our cancer survivors in the community. As a cancer survivor, our programme aims to integrate and provide continuity of care for you back in the community you live in.
This programme will see the NCIS transitioning routine cancer care for stable breast and colorectal cancer survivors to our community partners* such as selected GPs in the National University Health System primary care network, Keat Hong and Frontier Family Medicine Clinics (FMCs) and the six polyclinics under the National University Polyclinics (NUPs).
*Our partner GPs and physicians at the FMCs and polyclinics have undergone training and certified by NCIS to provide cancer survivorship care.
