1. Models of Delivery for Survivorship Care

Various models of delivering survivorship care have been developed and implemented in the US. However, no one model has been found to be the exact fit for all health care facilities that care for cancer survivors. This chapter discusses the various models and the advantages and disadvantages of each.

2. Standards and Guidelines of Practice That Improve Quality of Survivorship Care

The Commission on Cancer is an accreditation program of the American College of Surgeons which sets standards to improve the survival and quality of life of cancer patients. The standards reflect a multidisciplinary, patient-centered approach and a commitment to quality cancer care. This chapter provides an overview of these standards, particularly, those addressing survivorship.

3. The Purpose, Importance, and Components of the Survivorship Treatment Summary and Care Plan

A major recommendation of the 2005 Institute of Medicine report was to provide patients with a treatment summary and survivorship care plan following completion of cancer treatment. Standards now require that both documents contain specific components, that the content of each must be discussed with the survivor, and that copies are given to the patient. This chapter provides a full discussion of the purpose and importance of these documents as well as the components of each.
