A Solution for Complying with Standard 3.3: Survivorship Care Planning

Journey Forward offers a free tool for meeting Continuum of Care Standard 3.3.: Survivorship Care Plan. This standard requires that all cancer programs provide a summary of treatment and a follow-up plan to all patients completing cancer treatments.

Journey Forward’s Survivorship Care Plan Builder is a free, downloadable software tool that supports the rapid creation of patient care plans with all the essential components identified by the CoC and Institute of Medicine (IOM). Journey Forward care plans include:

  • A treatment summary, based on the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO®) Chemotherapy Treatment Summary templates
  • An individualized schedule for follow-up care based on ASCO guidelines
  • A psychosocial assessment adapted from UCLA Cancer Survivorship Center materials
  • Guidance on symptom management provided by Oncology Nursing Society (ONS)
  • Information on what to expect, symptoms to watch for, and late-effects of treatment
Journey Forward provides free technical support for the Survivorship Care Plan Builder. In fall 2013, Journey Forward completed a successful pilot and beta testing of a solution for pulling care plan data from your cancer registry software. This solution will be publicly available for C/NET Solution’s registry product in Q4 2013, and expanded to other registry products in 2014.

Journey Forward is a cross-industry collaboration between National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship, UCLA Cancer Survivorship Center, Oncology Nursing Society, WellPoint, Inc., and Genentech.
