Survivorship care plans

The Institute of Medicine (now National Academy of Medicine) recommended that all patients who complete cancer treatment are provided with a survivorship care plan that includes information about their treatment, plan for follow-up, possible late effects, resources, and care coordination. Several organizations have developed programs to create survivorship care plans for patients.
