As cancer treatments improve, more and more cancer patients are making it to the end of treatment and will no longer require hospital care. Shari Moura is a clinical nurse specialist working to help survivors make a smooth transition back to their family doctors through a pilot project called the
After Cancer Treatment Transition Clinic (ACTT). I sat down with Shari to discuss the importance of partnering with family physicians to ensure good mangement of long term side effects, chronic disease, and monitoring for cancer recurrence. The Princes Margaret Cancer Centre-Women's College Hospital ACTT clinic is operated by Dr. Carol Townsley and Shari Moura, RN CNS.
