Rethinking assumptions about cancer survivorship

Svetlana Ristovski-Slijepcevic, Kirsten Bell

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A growing body of research informed by theories and methods in the social sciences and humanities indicates that certain problematic messages are commonly embedded in popular and oncological representations of cancer. Becoming more aware of these underlying messages has the potential to improve the ways clinicians think about and manage cancer.
