Abstract:
Education: There are an estimated 2.3 million living breast cancer survivors in the U.S. An individual is a cancer survivor from the time of diagnosis, through the rest of their life. The transition from active treatment to post-treatment is crucial to the establishment of long-term health. Cancer survivors must be given knowledge of their risks with a follow-up plan of care that provides promotion of a healthy lifestyle, surveillance for cancer recurrence, and management of physical and psychological effects of the cancer experience. The Central Ohio Breast Cancer Survivorship Initiative is intended to create a professional and lay framework that promotes key IOM and NCTA initiatives relative to breast cancer survivorship. A paradigm shift with a new approach for the delivery of care to breast cancer survivors is required. Interventions include: (1) Multidisciplinary Advisory Board; (2) 1 professional (with CE credits) and 1 lay educational symposium; (3) communication and mentorship with institutions and health care providers in the Komen designated 23 counties (4) dissemination of educational tools, resources, and template for survivorship care planning (5) mentoring of initiation/implementation of survivorship care plans 6) dissemination of evidence-based educational tools (ONS PEP cards) (7) development of quality assurance indicators (8) inquiry of nursing and medical school education about survivorship; and (11) dissemination of project outcomes. The establishment of survivorship champions has been necessary to delineate role responsibility as well as focus attention on survivorship care planning. Professionals that provide care to breast cancer survivors have increased their knowledge and incorporate important survivorship initiatives into their daily practice setting. The use of ONS PEP has reduced geographical and educational barriers. A statewide nursing educational initiative has been proposed. Focused leadership and coalition of professionals in this initiative will continue to provide resources and expertise, avoid unnecessary duplication of efforts, and improve overall delivery of survivorship care. This is an innovative approach to use local Komen resources and regional experts to educate each other.
