"When I was discharged from the hospital, I couldn't believe how nervous and afraid I was because I had no idea what was going to happen next, in terms of testing and follow-up." — Richard Boyajian, RN, MS, ANP
A care plan starts with an end-of-treatment summary, which is a record of what you and your doctors already know. It summarizes when you were diagnosed, the date of your diagnosis, what type of cancer you had, and what steps were included in your treatment. With this in hand, you and your primary care physician can start mapping out your care plan over the long and short term, based on the unique health risks that come with being a cancer survivor.
