Sanft says all plans should include a detailed treatment summary as well as potential late- and long-term side effects. Information on surveillance and how to detect second cancers are also an important part of a survivorship plan, Sanft says.

The plan should also include resources about healthy lifestyle behaviors, financial help, mental health help and support for family members.
