National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship State of Survivorship Survey 2022: Survey Results Webinar


The National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship’s State of Survivorship Survey 2022 survey results briefing is Wednesday, October 26, 2022 at 12:00pm ET. Attendees will get first access to survey findings which drive policy and advocacy work for the coming year. Register to attend:

The State of Survivorship Survey delves deeper into the cancer journey, measuring satisfaction across different points, including screening and diagnosis, treatment and care, and post-treatment care. Among other key findings, this year’s results reflect alarming misdiagnosis rates particularly in underserved groups and young adults, survivors reporting symptoms long after treatment, and disparities in the equity of and access to quality cancer care disproportionately affecting people of color, young adults, women, and individuals with metastatic cancer. Additionally, the number of respondents who experienced physical, emotional, and financial issues has increased significantly, especially when it comes to financial concerns.

Shelley Fuld Nasso, National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship’s Chief Executive Officer, shares “In our fourth year conducting the annual survey, we find that cancer survivors are generally satisfied with their care, even as they describe gaps in their care. Generally, they find that their health care team addresses the physical symptoms of cancer and cancer treatment better than the other challenges survivors face, including fatigue, depression and anxiety, concerns about exercise and nutrition, and financial concerns. Some groups of cancer survivors experience disproportionate burdens throughout their cancer journey, especially young adults, people of color, and people living with metastatic cancer. These findings inform our policy efforts to improve cancer care for everyone touched by cancer.”
