Join us in congratulating Dr. Deborah K. Mayer whose grant “Evaluation of Preferences for Survivorship Care Plans” has been funded by the South Atlantic Division of the American Cancer Society. Cancer survivorship care represents a distinct phase of the cancer care trajectory and includes four components of care. Providing cancer survivors and their primary care provider with a Survivor Care Plan (SCP), which includes a treatment summary and care plan, is one component of survivorship care. There are a range of available SCP templates, but many are complex and detailed. The overall aim of this pilot study is to explore survivor and primary care provider preferences regarding the content, format, and delivery mode of treatment summary care plans. Congratulations to Deb!
