Cancer Plan Minnesota 2025

Objective 7

Increase the use of survivorship care plans


7.1 Educate patients and health care providers (including nurse practitioners, physician assistants, primary care physicians, surgeons, oncologists) about the key components of survivorship care, including the development and communication of survivorship care plans

7.2 Improve communication between the oncology team and primary care providers and devise efficient, timely methods to get survivorship care plans from oncology to primary care

7.3 Expand the survivorship care plan to include referrals to services

7.4 Promote policies that support adequate reimbursement for development of survivorship care plans by a multi-disciplinary team and communication of the plan to the patient



At Cancer Summit Minnesota 2017 small groups discussed the strategies corresponding with this objective. Below are their compiled notes:

No groups were formed to discuss strategies 7.2, 7.3, and 7.4 at the Summit. If you would like to work on one of these strategies please email

At the Summit attendees were also asked to make specific pledges to strategies to help move the work forward. Find the list of who committed to objective 7 strategies here (scroll down to view all the corresponding strategies).
