Cancer Survivors: Addressing ongoing needs Join this Group

Survivorship Plans - New info from ACS

By Expert HERWriter Guide Blogger July 28, 2010 - 8:17am

In 2006 the Institute of Medicine issued a report recommending that every cancer patient receive an individualized survivorship care plan that includes guidelines for monitoring and maintaining their health. In response to that report, many groups have now developed various types of "care plans" to help improve the quality of care of survivors as they move beyond their cancer treatment. This information was updated today on the American Cancer Society website and can be found at http://www.cancer.org/Treatment/SurvivorshipDuringandAfterTreatment/SurvivorshipCarePlans/index

Is anyone using these types of plans? Any thoughts, suggestions or recommendations for others? Have you found these plans helpful?
