Survivorship care plans

The Institute of Medicine (now National Academy of Medicine), the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the Commission on Cancer and other organizations support the development of a survivorship care plan that includes information about their treatment, plan for follow-up, possible late effects, resources, and care coordination.  Several templates have been developed.

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

Generic and cancer-specific templates are available.

Passport for Care
This website provides a “Screening Recommendations Generator” tool that empowers survivors to independently learn about their potential late effects, guidelines-based screening recommendations for these late effects, and any relevant guidelines for follow up care after cancer treatment.
