LIVESTRONG Care Plan

What’s New with the LIVESTRONG Care Plan?

The seventh version of the LIVESTRONG Care Plan is about to launch! There are a few noticeable enhancements in this version, including a healthcare provider version and all new and improved surgical information.

HCPs will now have the opportunity to tailor the plans they create for patients by removing content not relevant to a particular survivor’s case. We heard you loud and clear- the current side effects questions are too much to do in a busy clinic, so they have been removed from the HCP version.

Our team has rewritten and greatly expanded the information provided on surgery effects. We hope this will help survivors get more of what they need. In addition, survivors creating a plan will have an opportunity to participate in a follow up survey (4-6 weeks after creating a plan) to help us continue to make the program useful to the survivor community.

Remember, we love to hear your feedback; it is often your opinions that inspire changes and improvements in the program.
