Similarly, the Leukemia Center has a specific disease focus, and all patients undergoing treatment for leukemia are cared for in this center. Given the success of the MCC model for care delivery during the first two stages of survivorship, we have chosen to extend the application of this model into longterm survivorship. However, the unique clinical needs of long-term survivors are not necessarily focused on oncologic care, but rather on reintegration to wellness. The patient’s clinical team therefore changes from principal oncologic specialists (surgeons, radiation oncologists, and medical oncologists) to specialists in cancer prevention, psychosocial issues, and internal medicine, with the continued engagement of oncologists as appropriate depending on the risk tier level of the patient.
