Despite the growing evidence base for supported self-management for the improvement of quality of life, there is a lack of widespread implementation of self-management interventions for cancer survivors. We propose fve key areas that, if addressed, would optimise the development and evaluation of these interventions, namely: (1) improving intervention adaptability to diferent survivor populations; (2) establishing intervention acceptability (and feasibility); (3) ensuring systematic description of interventions, their content, and active ingredients; (4) conducting process evaluations; and (5) assessing cost-efectiveness. These areas are an essential prerequisite for translation of self-management interventions from research into routine cancer care.
