Breast cancer survivors face many challenges stemming from both their disease and its treatment. In December 2015, the American Cancer Society and the American Society of Clinical Oncology released collaborative evidence-based breast cancer survivorship care guidelines for female breast cancer survivors and their primary care providers. This article discusses these recommendations for surveillance, screening, and management of both long-term and late effects of breast cancer and treatment. At a Glance • The American Cancer Society and the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) collaborative breast cancer survivorship care guidelines are based on previous recommendations from ASCO and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network. • These guidelines contain holistic recommendations to help with the surveillance and management of both long-term and late effects of breast cancer and treatment. • Nurses need to provide information, education, and support to assist women with following these guidelines after treatment for breast cancer.
