Cancer Survivorship Checklist--Check What You Need to Know

A New Patient Tool from NCCS

Survivorship Checklist thumbnailWe at the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS) often hear from patients that they wish they would have received important information regarding their care earlier in their cancer journey. Furthermore, many report that they feel especially isolated when transitioning from active treatment into survivorship.

With these concerns in mind, NCCS developed the “Cancer Survivorship Checklist.” This checklist is designed to be a simple, straightforward tool patients and caregivers can use as a guide for information critical to their care wherever they are on the cancer care continuum.

This tool is consistent with the principles of quality survivorship care that are embedded in the Institute of Medicine’s influential report; “From Cancer Patient to Cancer Survivor: Lost in Transition.” In drafting and refining the checklist, we engaged a number of NCCS advisors, including cancer survivors and health care professionals with a wide range of experience.
