Survivorship Care for Gynecologic Oncology Patients
When a woman completes her treatment regimen an appointment dedicated to her transition out of treatment is scheduled. Patients have a one-on-one connection with their social worker and nurse practitioner who cover social, emotional and safety concerns, provide support resources, and discuss the future follow-up plan of care. A Time to Heal is a cancer survivorship support program for all cancer diagnoses that patients can take part in. Patients may also take part in the Cancer Fitness Program or mind-body movement classes to facilitate recovery.
