Cancer Survivorshop After-Care Plan

This document was designed by the Gilda’s Club South Jersey Advocacy Networking Group in late 2009. It is an informal medical record to be completed by cancer care professionals and/or the survivor during and at the completion of cancer treatment. This compilation of treatment, possible long-term side effects, screening recommendations and suggested follow up care is to be shared with the survivor’s primary care physician, specialists, and family members. It is the intention of the Advocates to empower cancer survivors with the knowledge about the care they have received as well as to help them make informed decisions about their after-care and health maintenance.
