Survivor Care Plan

What’s Next? Life After Cancer Treatment in now available. The Survivor Care Plan Project Team has created this 25 page booklet to empower survivors in their post-treatment phase of their cancer journey.

What’s Next? Life After Cancer Treatment was designed specifically to:

  • help survivors document their cancer care experience, manage follow-up medical care, and understand short- and long-term side effects
  • provide information and directions for self-care
  • provide a platform for dialog between patients and their providers

“A survivor care plan is for the future-an empowering
reminder that you still have control of your life.”

There are approximately 170,000 cancer survivors living in Minnesota. Post-treatment issues have become increasingly important as more and more people are living well beyond their initial cancer diagnosis due to advances in early detection and therapeutic technologies. This booklet is intended to help these survivors better understand and cope with the demands of post-treatment care.
