Cancer Survivorship in Primary Care Website Now Available

This site (http://cancersurvivorshipprimarycare.org/) serves as a resource for primary care providers who treat survivors of cancer. With the increase in the number of cancer survivors in the U.S., research shows that primary care providers can improve their skills and comfort levels when it comes to cancer related issues. The site, created by Dr. Larissa Nekhlyudov, Associate Professor in the Department of Population Medicine at Harvard Medical School and a general internist at Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates, is designed specifically for medical professionals, not patients. It contains links to a number of resources, including clinical, research, and educational opportunities, as well as resources for survivors and caregivers. To suggest links, articles, or conferences that will be useful for the site, send an email to info@cancersurvivorshipprimarycare.org.


The GEM-Care Planning Initiative (GEM-CP)

From NCI--The GEM-Care Planning Initiative (GEM-CP), a project initiated by the National Cancer Institute's Health Communication and Informatics Research Branch (HCIRB) and Office of Cancer Survivorship, is intended to build consensus in the survivorship community around high-priority process and outcome measures for use in studies of survivorship care planning. This is an essential first step towards the use of shared measures across care planning research efforts. Increased use of shared measures will enable comparability across studies and facilitate expeditious identification of strategies to implement optimal care planning - or barriers to that planning - for cancer survivors.
