Abstract:
Education: Survivorship care plans have been identified by the Institute of Medicine as an integral component of oncology care, guiding the transition from active treatment to post-treatment follow-up. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men; currently, there are 2.1 million prostate cancer survivors in the U.S., representing 45% of all male cancer survivors. Over 90% of prostate cancers are local or regional at diagnosis; relative survival rates for these cancers approach 100% at 5 years. However, treatment-related complications, including sexual, urinary and bowel dysfunction, hormonal changes, and psychosocial issues, can adversely affect quality of life in proste cancer survivors. Additionally, since most men with prostate cancer will die of other causes, the importance of health promotion is substantial and represents a significant opportunity for nurses to develop innovative educational materials and strategies to facilitate health-oriented behaviors and preventive care. Our goal was to design and implement an easily customizable survivorship care plan incorporating health promotion strategies, aimed at providing a clear post-treatment follow-up plan for prostte cancer survivors attending our survivorship clinic. Personalized survivorship care plans are prepared for each patient attending City of Hope's Prostate Cancer Survivorship Clinic. The nurse practitioner, who is the primary provider in the clinic, generates each care plan from a standardized template, customizing the plan with demographic, diagnostic, and treatment-related information merged from the clinic's Microsoft Access database. Recommendations for follow-up care, health promotion strategies specific to each patient's age, medical history, and co-morbidities, and links to additional resources are also incorporated. Using a standardized template, the nurse practitioner can generate a customized survivorship care plan in approximately 10 minutes. Incorporation of the care plan into clinical visits has increased opportunities for providing high-quality, personalized health education. Patient satisfaction with the survivorship care plans has been uniformly high. By incorporating a record of cancer diagnosis, treatment, recommendations for follow-up, and health promotion into one succinct document, the nurse provides prostate cancer survivors with a clear follow-up plan that can be used both by the survivor and his healthcare providers to optimize health promotion and posttreatment care.
