PURPOSE: To understand what factors influence whether a cancer survivor will share their survivorship care plan (SCP) with their healthcare provider (HCP). METHODS: We used data from 3231 cancer survivors who utilized the OncoLink SCP resource between 2009 and 2016. Random forest and stepwise regression were used to identify predictors of SCP satisfaction and barriers to survivors sharing their care plans with their HCPs. RESULTS: Eighty-seven percent of users rated their satisfaction with their SCP as good or better; however, only 70% of survivors planned to share their SCP with their HCP...

PURPOSE: Despite advancements in care, cancer survivors continue to report unmet needs following active cancer treatment. The Cancer Survivor Profile-Breast Cancer (CSPro-BC) application (app) was developed to help address these needs, using breast cancer survivors (BCS) as a pilot group. This paper describes the app development, BCS and nurse perceptions of the app, and changes made based on this feedback. METHODS: The CSPro-BC app was developed for use on an iPad and includes (1) administration of a 15-20-min survey assessing 18 needs, (2) generation of a profile of needs, relative to a reference group of BCS (median 2 years post-treatment), and (3) provision of problem-specific online resources...

BACKGROUND: Supervised exercise interventions produce the largest improvements in patient-reported outcomes in cancer survivors but their scalability has been questioned. Telephone counseling has been proposed as a more feasible alternative but its impact on exercise behavior and health outcomes have been modest. Basing telephone counseling exercise (TCE) interventions on the theoretical advances described in the multi-process action control framework (M-PAC) may improve these outcomes...
