Survivorship Care Plans (SCPs) are a communication tool that empowers cancer patients to self-advocate and strengthens the relationship between oncology and primary care providers (PCPs). SCPs benefit both patients and PCPs by improving overall quality of care. Studies show that patients report high levels of survivor satisfaction with SCPs (Palmer et al., 2015), while PCPs who receive an SCP are more likely to engage in survivorship discussion with their patients (Blanch-Hartigan et al., 2014).
