Survivorship Care Program

ECHN’s Meg Berté Owen Survivorship Program promotes activities that reduce the late effects of cancer treatment. It encourages surveillance for recurring cancers and second malignancies, and it addresses the psychosocial needs of patients and their families.

Major areas of interest include assessment and management of:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Chronic pain
  • Disability
  • Employment
  • Fatigue
  • Fertility
  • Insurability
  • Nutrition
  • Sexuality

Your Personalized Survivorship Care Plan

All participants in our Survivorship Program can request a free Cancer Survivorship Care Plan, a comprehensive summary of your diagnosis, treatment and post-treatment plan between your oncology team, primary care physician and other healthcare professionals. The plan includes:

  • Cancer diagnosis with specific information about the type and stage
  • Cancer treatment information including surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy
  • Follow-up care including the recommended schedule for follow-up tests
  • Symptoms to watch for potential late effects of cancer treatment
  • Support resources for patients and physicians

Genetic assessment of patients and their families with a potential for inherited cancer syndromes is also encouraged.
