Nina Kadan-Lottick, MD, associate professor of Pediatrics (Hematology/Oncology and medical director of the HEROS program at Yale School of Medicine, discusses ways to improve survivorship care plans.

In a study, Kadan-Lottick found that between 0% and 20% of patients who were given survivorship care plan documents went to have recommended tests done after ending treatment. Since she found that this is not an effective method, Kadan-Lottick discusses some possible ways to help patients adhere to their post-cancer treatment plans.

Ideas included extra patient education at the completion of therapy, the use of health tech, such as text messages or smartphone apps to motivate and remind patients to follow their care plans, and further education of doctors so that they can be more active in their patients’ survivorship.
