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 at http://gwcehp.learnercommunity.com/elearning-series
Survivorship Care Plans (SCPs) and Treatment Summaries (TSs) offer a succinct summary of a cancer survivor’s treatment, as well as a plan of action moving forward with a primary care provider. Several templates for SCPs and TSs currently exist, including Journey Forward, LIVESTRONG Care Plan, Oncolink and the ASCO Treatment Summaries and Survivorship Care Plans. These can also be adapted to the unique needs of your practice.
Nearly 400 volunteers in 58 counties have been cutting out fabric and elastic, handling administrative duties and of course, sewing.
Beginning April 9 at 9am, you are invited to a weekly meditation and mindfulness series to amplify support and encouragement among the cancer care team.
