Urologic Cancer Survivorship Program
The Polsky Institute provides disease-specific resources and holistic care for patients from the time of diagnosis and throughout treatment and recovery. In addition to assessing for, treating and preventing many of the long-term effects of cancer and cancer treatment, the Adult Survivorship Clinics at the Lurie Cancer Center collaborates with urologic oncologists to create a tailored survivorship care plan with a surveillance schedule that includes screening for other cancers. Each plan includes formal education on optimizing health and wellness through exercise, nutrition and psychosocial enhancement. Patients are also given the opportunity to participate in studies evaluating psychosocial interventions to reduce symptom burden and improve health related quality of life.
