LIVSTRONG Care Plan OncoLink

The LIVESTRONG Care Plan is a "survivorship care plan" that is individualized based on the answers you provide in a brief questionnaire. In order to develop the most accurate plan of care, you may need to talk to your oncology team to have some details of your cancer therapy available:

  • Type of cancer
  • If you received radiation therapy, what type of cancer was this done for?
  • If you received chemotherapy, what medications were received?
  • If you underwent surgery, what procedures were done?

It is divided into sections that mirror the typical path a person with a new diagnosis might take. Not all sections will apply to you, so use those that fit your situation.
