The Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre has launched an online survivorship care plan generator, myCarePlan.org.au
Developed in collaboration with specialists, consumers, and cancer-organisations, this tool is quick and easy to use, and freely available to healthcare providers and patients.
Patients enter information about an early-stage breast, prostate, or colorectal cancer diagnosis, related treatments and current side-effects to create a personalised health and wellbeing plan for the future.
The Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre has also launched a suite of new resources on the Peter Mac website, the Common Survivorship Issues Directory.
Created to act as a central repository for commonly experienced cancer survivorship issues and concerns, it has been developed for both health professionals and people who have experienced cancer.
Their are nine survivorship issues addressed, with each section containing information about clinical services, research and projects at Peter Mac and within the Parkville precinct, plus a range of online resources and fact sheets.
By increasing awareness of services and providing easy access to resources for survivors and health professionals, the directory aims to support and enable evidence based quality survivorship care, ultimately improving outcomes for cancer survivors.
