Journey Forward was developed in response to the 2005 IOM report From Cancer Patient to Cancer Survivor: Lost in Transition, which stated that every cancer survivor should receive a Survivorship Care Plan. Our early research confirmed the benefits to patients and healthcare professionals. So, in 2008, we “set about developing concrete solutions for the challenges cancer survivors and their healthcare providers face. The result is an adaptable, complimentary suite of award-winning, cancer care planning tools—for patients and professionals—that have set a new standard in cancer care.
Journey Forward is a unique collaboration of organizations with the common goal of improving survivorship care, including Anthem, Inc., Cancer Support Community, Genentech, National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship, Oncology Nursing Society and UCLA Cancer Survivorship Center.
