We understand that cancer therapies may affect your health for a long time, or increase your risk of developing other conditions later. In addition, you may experience psychological and emotional effects of the disease, including concerns about recurrence.
Led by a registered nurse, the Survivorship Support Program is designed to help you maintain your health and improve your quality of life once your hospital treatment is complete.
Survivorship Support Services
Specifically, the Survivorship Support Program consists of four key elements:
- Program Introductions: At the start of your treatment, we will meet with you to talk about the Survivorship Support Program and how it can benefit you.
- Clinical Assessments: After your primary treatment, we will work with you to assess your health and identify potential long and late term effects of your treatment.
- Care Plan: We will complete a wellness plan for you based on the specific treatments you have received. The plan will include help with managing medications, side effects, and pain.
- Communication: We will continue to be in touch whenever you need us, providing nutritional, physical and emotional education and support.
