Survivorship - Support Back   
National Cancer Institute's Office of Cancer Survivorship
800-422-6237

The mission of the Office of Cancer Survivorship (OCS) is to enhance the quality and length of survival of all persons diagnosed with cancer and to minimize or stabilize adverse effects experienced during cancer survivorship. The Office of Cancer Survivorship conducts and supports research that both examines and addresses the long- and short-term physical, psychological, social, and economic effects of cancer and its treatment among pediatric and adult survivors of cancer and their families.

This mission is accomplished through a variety of funding mechanisms, e.g., Investigator Initiated Applications (R01s), Small Grant Programs (R03s) and Request for Applications (RFAs), meetings with researchers, health professionals, and the public to build common research agendas, and assistance to the NCI and other organizations concerned with survivors' needs for education, communication and appropriate medical and supportive care.

The Office of Cancer Survivorship develops an agenda for the continuous acquisition of knowledge concerning the problems and challenges facing cancer survivors and their families, supports studies to increase the length of survival for cancer patients and improve the quality of survival of all individuals diagnosed with cancer and their families, including those that involve prevention of subsequent disease and disability, and promotes the dissemination of information to professionals who treat cancer patients, and the public concerning the problems and needs of cancer survivors and their families.
