A substantial part of the Cancer Plan 2009-2013 is devoted to the post-cancer period, particularly through the principle of "living during and after cancer". In this context the institutions of the Vaucluse-Camargue Inter 3C (Committee for Coordination in Cancerology) have proposed a plan whose main function is to insert the post-cancer phase into the continuum of time laid out when the malignant nature of the disease is explained to the patient. Thus, we intend to make the management programme that we propose to the patient more comprehensive using the dynamic that has been imparted by the establishment of the cancer diagnosis communication strategy (dispositif d'annonce) in our health region. © Springer-Verlag France 2011.
