Survivorship care plans

The Institute of Medicine (now National Academy of Medicine) committee 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.

This free and easy to use program provides cancer survivors with information regarding the health risks they face as a result of cancer therapies.
