NCCS: Beyond the Checkbox: Delivering Meaningful Cancer Survivorship Care in a Community Setting

12:00 AM - 1:00 PM

NCCS: Beyond the Checkbox: Delivering Meaningful Cancer Survivorship Care in a Community Setting

As we approach the 17th year since the Institute of Medicine released their landmark report, “From Cancer Patient to Cancer Survivor: Lost in Transition”, oncology programs continue to encounter challenges in implementing survivorship care in a way which provides meaning and long-term value to cancer survivors and their families.

Updates to the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer (CoC) survivorship standard in 2020 attempt to address this challenge by encouraging cancer programs to move beyond providing a survivorship care plan document to patients and into engaged action that represents the intended outcome of quality survivorship care delivery that includes prevention and surveillance of treated or potential cancers, surveillance and management of physical and psychosocial effects and promotion of health.

Dr. Crystal Labbato will present the current model for survivorship care delivery utilized within the Baptist Health Louisville community cancer center, and how they were able to tailor services to best meet the needs of cancer survivors in their community.
