Abstract

People living with cancer are far from a homogenous population. Their disease trajectory and support needs vary widely according to the cancer group they belong to. To respond to those needs, cancer care teams need the input of allied health professionals, support workers and volunteers. Allied health professionals in particular have a role to play in helping patients recover from and adapt to life after cancer and cancer treatment. This article - the second of a two-part series on living with cancer - highlights the different needs of people living with cancer and the roles and skill mix needed to deliver recovery package interventions.
