Survivorship/Life After Treatment
Finishing treatment means you will probably have questions about what happens next and how your diagnosis and treatment may affect your future.
We have created an ‘end of treatment folder’ that lists some of these questions for you to discuss with your AYA Keyworker or healthcare team and to keep your follow-up care plan in.
If you do not have a copy of this please ask your AYA Keyworker for one.
Below are several fact sheets and booklets with information related to after treatment care and worries.
Please contact your AYA Keyworker if you need more information. Not all of the provided information will be specific to New Zealand.
