Project Description

Research and collect examples of templates/documents for Australian cancer survivorship care plans (SCP) currently being used in hospitals, health services and cancer agencies. Templates should preferably be sourced from Victorian hospitals, but can be Australian-wide. Cancer tumour streams to prioritise for the templates are: breast cancer, colorectal/bowel cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, and melanoma.

The aim and intended purpose of an SCP is to deliver patient-centred care by enhancing communication between the oncology team and the patient as well as communication and coordination of care between the oncology team and the primary care provider.

The SCP is a multi-purpose communication tool, designed to guide clinical care and coordination following acute treatment; to meet survivor information needs; and to augment the supportive care process through the post-treatment transition period.

An SCP comprises:

• a treatment summary suitable for health professionals as well as consumers

• a follow-up plan

• a post-treatment care plan.

An SCP should consider the information collected by needs assessment tools
