LIVESTRONG and Penn Medicine announce partnership to bring online care plan tool to cancer survivors
Date:5/27/2009

ll as English, the LIVESTRONG Care Plan is designed to also help facilitate a meaningful discussion between cancer survivors and their health care providers. For example, the care plan provides users with a report outlining medical tests survivors should discuss with their physician once they have completed active treatment.

"The LIVESTRONG Care Plan empowers cancer survivors to take an active role in their health care by providing customized information based on the cancer therapies they receive," said James M. Metz, MD., associate professor at Penn Medicine's Department of Radiation Oncology and Editor-in-Chief of OncoLink. "This unique tool allows them to open meaningful dialog with their healthcare team to assist them in their continued journey through cancer survivorship."

The LAF's interest in providing a state-of-the-art care plan through its Network reaches back to 2006 and the first meeting of the LIVESTRONG Survivorship Center of Excellence Network which identified the need for a care plan through which cancer survivors could document important milestones in their cancer experiences. The benefit of cancer survivorship care plans was embraced by an Institute of Medicine report, "From Cancer Patient to Cancer Survivor: Lost in Transition" in November, 2005.

Today's announcement of a partnership between LAF and Penn Medicine supports the mission of both entities to provide cancer survivors around the world an easy and accessible way for them to take charge and optimize the quality of their lives.
