In Italy, SARS-CoV-2 outbreak registered a high transmission and disease rates. During the acute phase, oncologists provided to re-organize services and prioritize treatments, in order to limit viral spread and to protect cancer patients.
The progressive reduction of the number of infections has prompted Italian government to gradually loosen the national confinement measures and to start the “Second phase” of measures to contain the pandemic. The issue on how to organize cancer care during this post-acute SARS-CoV-2 phase appears crucial and a reassessment of healthcare services is needed requiring new models of care for oncological patients. In order to address major challenges in cancer setting during post-acute SARS-CoV-2 phase, this work offers multidimensional solutions aimed to provide a new way to take care of cancer patients.
