Survivorship Care Plan 

Your life after cancer is about more than simply adjusting to a new normal. Our Cancer Survivorship Care program is led by a dedicated team of nurse navigators and advanced practice nurses, who work with you to develop a unique care plan that: 

  • Provides an individualized treatment summary for all cancer survivors.
  • Addresses any physical side effects that continue beyond the end of treatment.
  • Recognizes and addresses any psychological and psychosocial side effects of a cancer diagnosis while helping you cope with any fears of recurrence.
  • Outlines your follow-up care and improves surveillance of recurrence and any secondary cancers.
  • Promotes positive health behaviors including proper nutrition, regular exercise and stress management.
  • Improves your quality of life following the end of your cancer treatment(s).
  • Includes referrals to other specialists for treatment or therapies, where applicable.
