3 National to State; Advocacy Momentum


5 Definitional Issue: Who is a CANCER SURVIVOR? ● Philosophically, anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer is a survivor – from the time of diagnosis for the balance of life – NCCS, CDC (13 million as of April 2011, 20 million by 2020) ● Caregivers and family members are also cancer “co-survivors” (1:3 or 100 million) ● Term “survivor” is not always a good fit ● Historical similarities to Cardiac Rehabilitation, chronic disease management models

6 “The Seasons of Survival” ● Acute Survivorship ● Time of cancer diagnosis and any treatment that may follow ● Transitional Survivorship ● The difficult time when celebration is combined with fear ● Extended Survivorship ● Includes individuals living with cancer as a chronic disease and those in remission because of ongoing treatment ● Permanent Survivorship “Cancer free, but not worry free” ● 2/3 of survivors return to “new normal” ● 1/3 report continuing physical, psychosocial, or financial consequences ● Most survivors go back to the care of their primary provider Cure Summer 2009 – Kenneth Miller MD

11 Post-Treatment Myths ● For those who’ve experienced cancer: ● I should be celebrating ● I should feel well ● I should be the pre-cancer me ● I should not need support ● For providers seeking to support them ● “One size” Survivorship Programming fits all “While we don’t want each health system to reinvent the wheel, we do need to realize that urban and large systems and their programs may not apply to small cities and rural systems.” - Participant, 2010 WI Survivorship Forum Stanton, Ganz et al. Promoting Adjustment after Treatment for Cancer. Cancer. 2005:104 (11)2608-2613



14 IOM Report Recommendation 2 ● Patients completing primary treatment should be provided with a comprehensive care summary and follow-up plan that is clearly and effectively explained ● This “Survivorship Care Plan” should be written by the principal provider(s) who coordinated oncology treatment ● This service should be reimbursed by third party payers of health care

15 Key Elements of Successful Cancer Survivorship Plan - “Prevention, Surveillance, Intervention and Coordination” ● Summary of treatments received ● Follow up "care plan“ ● Potential late effects, their symptoms and treatment ● Recommendations for cancer screening (recurrence or new primary) ● Psychosocial effects (including relationships and sexuality/fertility) ● Financial issues (work, insurance and employment) ● Recommendations for a healthy lifestyle ● Genetic counseling (if appropriate) ● Effective prevention options ● Referrals for follow-up care ● List of support resources

16 WI CC Plan Survivorship Chapter Priority III: Increase Access to Quality Care and Services ● Strategy B: Ensure cancer survivors have an individualized survivor care plan Provide information about survivorship care plan templates and available models to implement survivor care plans on the WI CCC Program website Explore possibility of standardization of key survivorship care plan elements across the state


18 Mission – To provide an environment for patients and families that nurtures healthy survivorship by offering education and resources that maximize optimal medical care and quality of life from the time of diagnosis through the balance of life. Three Areas of Focus Comprehensive Care Summary and Wellness Plan Evidence-based education, resources and support Collaborations: community, treatment team, translational research, grant funding opportunities Nursing Process: Assess, Plan, Implement, Evaluate ….and begin again…
