The GW Cancer Center developed the Advancing Patient-Centered Cancer Survivorship Care Toolkit to support training and technical assistance from Comprehensive Cancer Control Programs/Coalitions to health care providers/organizations in order to improve patient-centered cancer survivorship care in their state, tribe or territory. All parts of this toolkit can be adapted to fit your specific needs. These tools are intended to serve as a starting point to help address reported care needs of post-treatment cancer survivors.
The guide includes a checklist, sample agendas, promotion tips, worksheets for workshop activities and facilitation instructions.
The slide deck includes two presentations, speaker notes and slides to facilitate activities.
The GW Cancer Center has developed three assessment strategies based on the Patient-Centered Survivorship Care Index. These tools are a provider survey, an organizational assessment and a patient survey.
