Jacquelyn Lauria, RN, MSN, APN-C, AOCNP, Advanced Practice Nurse, Stacey Goldstein Breast Cancer Center, Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, discusses putting together a survivorship care plan for cancer survivors.

Lauria says the survivorship care plans created at the Cancer Institute of New Jersey are a blend of recommendations made by ASCO and NCCN and the electronic medical records that are kept at the institute. It is important to strike a balance by summarizing the patient’s treatment without duplicating the medical records.

For a survivorship care plan, Lauria says they focus on what drugs the patient received, what kind of radiation they received and the providers who administered the treatments, Lauria says. Creating a plan that contains a treatment summary and a follow-up care plan helps patients monitor their health, even if they move away.
