Journey Forward

Journey Forward was developed in response to the 2005 IOM report 'From Cancer Patient to Cancer Survivor: Lost in Transition', which stated that every cancer survivor should receive a Survivorship Care Plan after treatment. Our early research confirmed the benefits to patients and healthcare professionals. So, we set about developing concrete solutions for the problems cancer survivors and their healthcare providers face. The result was an adaptable, complimentary suite of survivorship care planning tools that are setting a new standard in survivorship care.
