Project Summary

Survivorship care planning (SCP) is a type of patient-centered activation intervention that provides cancer patients with information on recommended health care and self-care following active cancer treatment. The goal of SCP is to meet patients’ information needs, improve communication with and among clinicians, and increase quality of life. Our steering committee is composed of 17 geographically, racially, ethnically, and culturally diverse members representing breast oncology and primary care, integrative medicine, patient navigation, health systems, psychosocial support organizations, and breast cancer patients. In Tier II, we will meet monthly. We will also collaborate to gather additional information from the patients, caregivers, social supporters, and clinicians we work with to better understand the gaps in the transition from active cancer treatment to self-care and identify possible solutions. We will develop a comprehensive communications plan. This process will also allow us to refine our comparative effectiveness research questions and move toward a competitive research proposal.
