Cancer survivors, as the consumers of survivorship care have crucial roles to play in creating successful care programs. This presentation will discuss the potential nature of their roles and how they may be integrated into the overall care. It will look at how survivors may be identified and engaged, and introduce the kinds of cultural and structural barriers to optimal survivor contributions. Finally the importance of the feedback loop will be discussed in avoiding survivor enrolment becoming a tokenistic activity.
