Abstract

Purpose

The aim of the study was to review the current state of cancer rehabilitation evidence and practice and delineate an agenda for building the future of cancer rehabilitation care.

Findings

Despite the benefits of cancer rehabilitation interventions and the unmet needs among patients with cancer, very few patients receive these services.

Conclusions

Interdisciplinary cancer rehabilitation should be implemented from diagnosis forward. Building this care involves coordinating efforts in four critical areas: innovating cancer rehabilitation care delivery, expanding the team of providers, creating precision medicine cancer rehabilitation, and demonstrating the value of cancer rehabilitation to drive referrals and reimbursement.

Clinical Relevance

Creating next-generation cancer rehabilitation care has the potential to improve the lives of the growing population of cancer survivors.
