5.4.1 Supportive care

See validated screening tools mentioned in Principle 4 ‘Supportive care’. Additionally, the ‘Cancer Survivors Unmet Needs (CaSun)’ is another validated screening tool that may help health professionals to identify the unmet needs of patients during survivorship.

Cancer survivors may require reminders about primary prevention measures for minimising their risk. Patients with skin cancers should be regularly reminded about sun protection measures and encouraged to download the SunSmart app on their smartphone.

For more information on supportive care and needs that may arise for different population groups, see Appendices A and B, and special population groups.
