The article was published May 25 in the MASCC journal Supportive Care in Cancer.
From the article: The MASCC “Survivorship Study Group sought input from members of the Survivorship Study Group to describe their responses to the impacts of COVID-19 on survivorship care, in the hope of identifying how members and their respective institutions have modified cancer survivorship practices and services during COVID-19 in order to identify major challenges of survivorship care delivery and strategies of addressing them.”
