However, there is something missing from this representation of the cancer trajectory. There is little attention given to life after treatment has ended, that period when the patient moves into what is termed ‘long-term survivorship’. There is a growing interest within Health Psychology in the quality of life of those whose lives have been prolonged by early detection and successful treatment of cancer and indeed, health psychologists have much to offer in this domain.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||European Health Psychology Society||Copyright (published version):||2014 the authors||Keywords:||Cancer survivorship; Health psychology; Quality of life||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed|
