BACKGROUND: After treatment for breast cancer, most women receive an annual surveillance mammography to look for subsequent breast cancers. Supplemental breast MRI is sometimes used in addition to mammography despite the lack of clinical evidence for it. Breast imaging after cancer treatment is an emotionally charged experience, an important part of survivorship care, and a topic about which limited patient information exists. We assessed women's experiences and preferences about breast cancer surveillance imaging with the goal of determining where gaps in care and knowledge could be filled...

: 74 Background: In 1999, the National Comprehensive Cancer Network issued guidelines for improving well-being of cancer survivors. Three tools, the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Performance Status (ECOGPS), the National Comprehensive Cancer Network Distress Thermometer (NCCNDT), and the Subjective Happiness Scale (SHS), are currently being used in a rural oncology survivorship clinic to assess patients' well-being. The question arose whether all three tools are necessary for adequate patient assessment...

: 253 Background: Clinically meaningful quality measures have been identified as a catalyst for healthcare improvement and better patient outcomes. Amidst rapidly changing quality reporting and re-imbursement schema, eligible providers struggle to choose a portfolio of measures across multiple registries that will demonstrate the value of their practice to consumers and payers. It is critical that a roadmap to quality improvement be evident to registry users. Utilizing the Model for Improvement developed by the Associates in Process Improvement and adapted to health care by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, a framework to guide performance improvement was developed and incorporated into an oncology specific QCDR for PQRS reporting...

: 161 Background: ASCO's Clinical Oncology Clinical Expert Statement on Cancer Survivorship Planning addressed the importance of using survivorship care plans (SCPs) to improve survivors' care. Evolving information technology strategies, such as web-based systems, offer real-time reporting tools to track providers' adherence for completion of SCPs. Our abstract reports on the creation of a web-based system to monitor survivors' care. METHODS: Ongoing audits of SCPs indicated broad variation in compliance rates with SCPs...

: 184 Background: Prior studies have exploredbarriers to collaborative cancer care and suggest a need for greater clarity about clinician roles. However, little is known about patient's preferences and expectations for which clinicians handle various aspects of care after primary cancer treatment. METHODS: A weighted random sample of newly diagnosed breast cancer patients in the Georgia and Los Angeles SEER registries were surveyed approximately 6 months after diagnosis (expected final N = 2600, 70% current response rate)...

: 239 Background: Despite the growing committment to improve survivorship care, measuring its quality remains difficult. In 2006, the American Society of Clinical Oncologists (ASCO) launched a practice-based system known as the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI) to measure the quality of cancer care. Here, we demonstrate the use of QOPI procedures to compare compliance with survivorship care plans (SCPs) across different disease-specific clinics. METHODS: Measures based on survivorship clinical practice guidelines were abstracted from SCPs issued to survivors scheduled for appointments in site-specific clinics...

: 117 Background: The complex physical and psychological sequelae faced by cancer survivors require methodical follow-up care. A growing body of evidence suggests clinics and providers dedicated to survivorship care is a promising approach for addressing these needs. Yet there is limited published data of survivors and providers' perceptions of dedicated survivorship care. This study's objective was to ascertain the strengths and weaknesses of clinical services provided in survivorship clinics...

: 104 Background: Kaiser Permanente (KP) is an integrated healthcare system providing comprehensive services to over 10 million members. The KP Interregional Breast Care Leaders, a multidisciplinary clinician group, developed a comprehensive evidence/consensus-based algorithm for breast cancer survivors, the KP Breast Cancer Survivorship National Clinical Algorithm (BCSNCA). The BCSNCA is intended to reduce variation in medical and psychosocial surveillance and improve outcomes by providing guidance to locally implemented survivorship programs, ie, recommendations for surveillance, late effects management, and risk reduction...

BACKGROUND: Psychoneuroimmunological theory suggests a physiological relationship exists between stress, psychosocial-behavioral factors, and neuroendocrine-immune outcomes; however, evidence has been limited. OBJECTIVE: The primary aim of this pilot study was to determine feasibility and acceptability of a salivary cortisol self-collection protocol with a mail-back option for breast cancer survivors. A secondary aim was to examine relationships between religiousness/spirituality (R/S), perceptions of health, and diurnal salivary cortisol (DSC) as a proxy measure for neuroendocrine activity...

OBJECTIVES: The best model of care for long-term follow-up of survivors of childhood cancer is uncertain. We describe the care experience provided by the joint adult/pediatric AfterCare Clinic at the McMaster Children's Hospital. Secondary outcomes include an evaluation of cancer worry, self-management skills, and loss to follow-up rates. METHODS: AfterCare Clinic patients aged 19-29 years were approached for study participation between January and March 2016. Data were collected from a cross-sectional survey, consisting of the Cancer Care Experience Questionnaire (CCEQ), Cancer Worry Scale (CWS), and Self-Management Skills Scale (SMSS)...

Cancer survivorship is being increasingly recognized as an important component of cancer care. This commentary reviews the key findings reported in the recent BMC Medicine publication of the ACTION study, which focuses on the health-related quality of life and psychological distress in 5249 cancer survivors in eight low- and middle-income countries in Southeast Asia. The study identified that more than one-third of survivors experience at least mild levels of anxiety and depressive symptoms and that poorer outcomes in quality of life, anxiety, and depressive symptoms are linked to a number of clinical and demographic factors...

One aim of dissemination and implementation (DI) research is to study the translation of evidence-based treatments (EBTs) from the research environments of their development and testing to broader communities where they are needed. There are few behavioral medicine DI studies and none in cancer survivorship. A determinant model (Setting, Therapist, Education, imPlementation, and Sustainability (STEPS)) was used to conceptualize DI of mental health treatment and frame a longitudinal study of implementation of a behavioral medicine EBT-a biobehavioral intervention (BBI) for cancer patients...

INTRODUCTION: Cancer is a growing health, social and economic problem. 1 in 3 people in the UK will develop cancer in their lifetime. With survival rates rising to over 50%, the long-term needs of cancer survivors are of growing importance. Cancer rehabilitation is tailored to address the physical or psychosocial decline in ability to engage in daily activities. Its use is supported by high-quality international, multicentre research. Incorporating strategies for self-management behaviour development into rehabilitation can prepare individuals for cancer survivorship...

Problem Identification: Advanced practice RNs (APRNs) have become leaders in providing survivorship care. However, outcomes of survivorship care provided by APRNs compared to other providers remain unclear. Literature Search: A systematic literature search included articles published after 2005 that described a survivorship model of care and use of a survivorship care plan (SCP), as well as reported outcomes. Data Evaluation: Sixteen studies were appraised and ranked by strength...

PURPOSE: Smoking cessation and increased physical activity (pa) have been linked to better outcomes in cancer survivors. We assessed whether socioeconomic factors influence changes in those behaviours after a cancer diagnosis. METHODS: As part of a cross-sectional study, a diverse group of cancer survivors at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre (Toronto, ON), completed a questionnaire about past and current lifestyle behaviours and perceptions about the importance of those behaviours with respect to their health...

REVIEW
Michael T Halpern, Keith E Argenbright
Although the number of cancer survivors has increased substantially in the past two decades, the evidence base regarding the effectiveness of cancer survivorship programmes is inadequate. Survivorship programmes tend to evaluate their effectiveness by assessing changes in patient-reported outcomes, symptoms and health status, knowledge, and receipt of cancer surveillance in programme participants. However, more comprehensive and high-quality evaluations of survivorship programmes are needed, including assessments using a broader set of measures...

REVIEW
Larissa Nekhlyudov, Denalee M O'malley, Shawna V Hudson
Since the release of the Institute of Medicine report: From cancer patient to cancer survivor: lost in transition, in 2005, there has been a national call in the USA to provide coordinated, comprehensive care for cancer survivors, with an emphasis on the role of primary care. Several models of care have been described, which focus on primary care providers (PCPs) as receiving cancer survivors who are transferred after successful treatment, and who are given specific types of information from oncology-based care (eg, survivorship care plans), and not as active members of the cancer survivorship team...
