Medical Requirements in Survivorship
Beehler et al.  demonstrated survivors had many primary care visits, but no contact with ‘holistic’ care support, e.g. dieticians, nutritionists, exercise rehabilitation. This is further supported by the findings of Aarts , indicating the presence of serious co-morbidity was closely linked to health related quality of life. Also associated were side effects of treatment (Deimling 2002). Khan et al. , demonstrated survivors, however, had no higher comorbidity than matched controls. This was explained by the robust follow-up system of primary care. Self-management interventions have also been assessed in survivors and found to improve urinary symptoms (Faithful 2010) with positive results.
