Survivorship Care Plans

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