Jennifer Klemp, Ph.D., M.P.H., asks the questions that remain unanswered in breast cancer survivorship.
First, she asks if every patient should get a survivorship plan. Klemp says they should, especially as there are now women with metastatic disease who are living for many years.
Next, she notes that survivorship education and symptom mitigation should be moved up to the time of diagnosis, not after treatment.
Finally, Klemp asks a pressing question on the minds of many patients and providers: how are we going to pay for all of this?
