Survivorship 101 Speakers Bureau

Elevating SurvivorshipNCCS developed a Survivorship 101 presentation that Speakers can use to educate community members about cancer survivorship and the post-treatment needs of cancer survivors. Speakers can customize the presentation to include their own experience and to reflect the audience, which could include support groups, provider groups, or other community-based organizations.

NCCS will provide the template and training/support to deliver the Survivorship 101 presentation, which includes the following components:

  • Share perspective on post-treatment needs of cancer survivors
  • Stimulate discussion about what good survivorship care means
  • Lay groundwork for improving survivorship care
Note: Speakers were selected for the 2019 pilot program. We hope to offer the opportunity again in 2020.

  • Speaker mentoring/support by NCCS team, brainstorming, and action conference calls.
  • Report presentation times and venues, outcomes, evaluations, and action items to NCCS staff.

Preferred Expertise & Composition

Speakers should have lay or general knowledge of survivorship care. They should also have connections with individuals and/or institutions in their cancer community to help identify opportunities to deliver Survivorship 101. In addition, Speakers should be timely in communicating with NCCS support staff and other Speakers as necessary.
