Educational Resources for Healthcare Professionals

Despite limited training in survivorship care, many healthcare professionals both within and outside of the oncology specialty will encounter cancer survivors in their practice. Fortunately, there are several evidence-based resources available to educate healthcare professionals of all types about important information relevant to cancer survivorship. From online webinars to survivorship care plans and treatment summaries, these resources can help guide healthcare professionals in making the best decisions to optimize cancer survivors’ quality of life.

With support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the George Washington University Cancer Institute partnered with the American Cancer Society to develop a Cancer Survivorship E-Learning series for Primary Care Providers. This is a free continuing education online program that provides an opportunity for primary care providers (e.g. physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and nurses) to increase their knowledge on cancer survivorship care, specifically in the primary care setting. Continuing medical education credits are available at no cost for each of the 1-hour modules. The following educational modules are available online:

  • Module 1: The Current State of Survivorship Care and the Role of Primary Care Providers
  • Module 2: Late Effects of Cancer and its Treatments: Managing Comorbidities and Coordinating with Specialty Providers
  • Module 3: Late Effects of Cancer and its Treatment: Meeting the Psychosocial Health Care Needs of Survivors
  • Module 4: The Importance of Prevention in Cancer Survivorship: Empowering Survivors to Live Well
  • Module 5: A Team Approach: Survivorship Care Coordination
  • Module 6: Cancer Recovery and Rehabilitation
  • Module 7: Spotlight on Prostate Cancer Survivorship: Clinical Follow-Up Care Guidelines for Primary Care Providers
  • Module 8: Spotlight on Colorectal Cancer Survivorship: Clinical Follow-Up Care Guideline for Primary Care Providers
  • Module 9: Spotlight on Breast Cancer Survivorship: Clinical Follow-Up Care Guideline for Primary Care Providers
  • Module 10: Spotlight on Head and Neck Cancer Survivorship: Clinical Follow-Up Care Guideline for Primary Care Providers
