Survivorship care plan templates 

Although each cancer is different, the ACSC has developed a general survivorship care plan template for people who have not received a plan. You can use the plan to enter the relevant information and save it or print it out for your records. You will need to know the cancer treatment you received, and details of your follow-up care.
