What a Typical Visit Looks Like

At your first visit, you will receive your personalized Survivorship Care Plan. This plan includes a written record of your cancer treatment and follow-up recommendations based on your treatment history and specific circumstances. The survivorship nurse practitioner will go over your plan in detail, address any questions or concerns you may have and make any necessary referrals. You will receive information about any treatment-related health problems that you may have, along with recommendations for management of these problems.

For your survivorship follow-up appointments, you will be seen in the Breast Cancer Survivorship Clinic every six months to a year. The survivorship nurse practitioner will talk with you about your diagnosis, treatment history and ways to stay as healthy as possible. Your medical history and any symptoms you are having will be reviewed with you by the survivorship nurse practitioner. You will undergo a physical examination and have screening tests based on the treatment that you received. Additional testing or referrals may be recommended, if needed, based on this evaluation.
