Survivorship care plan templates

Survivorship care plans (SCP) provide a useful summary of your treatment and what you can expect afterwards, they may also include useful health and wellbeing advice. Although each cancer is different, the ACSC provides a general survivorship care plan (SCP) 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 after treatment care.
