Cancer Survivorship Program

The Cancer Survivorship Program is specifically designed for UCSF patients who have completed their initial treatment for cancer. At this point, patients find they need different forms of support than while they were in active treatment. Many find themselves wondering:

  • Now what do I do?
  • Who will have time to answer my questions?
  • How do I make sure I continue the appropriate care?
  • Will there be ways to update me on the latest findings and how these discoveries apply to me?
  • How should I expect to feel?

The Cancer Survivorship Program has been designed to address these questions, provide resources and enable patients to focus on their path to recovery. The program varies depending upon the type of cancer, so please contact your UCSF cancer practice for more details.

Survivorship Retreats

We also offer a bi-annual retreat that is open to all patients who have completed active treatment, regardless of where they received care. Topics include: nutrition, managing fear of recurrence, sexuality after cancer, exercise and tools for valued living after cancer. To be notified of upcoming retreats and seminars, please contact the Cancer Resource Center at (415) 885-3693 and ask to be added to our mailing list.

Survivorship Wellness Program

Survivorship Wellness is an eight-week program focused on helping cancer survivors learn about and practice skills to optimize their health and wellness after treatment.

In this group program, you will have the opportunity to learn from and practice with our cancer center dietitians, social workers, psychologists, chaplains, health coaches and exercise counselors. You will be able to set goals related to nutrition, physical activity, managing stress, sleeping well and promoting sexual, emotional and spiritual wellness after cancer treatment.

If you are a UCSF patient who has completed cancer treatment and are interested in registering for Survivorship Wellness, please call (415) 353-3931.
