Survivorship


​​The University of Colorado Cancer Center's commitment to care for cancer patients goes beyond the treatment period. Our Survivorship Program, guided by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, is designed to help patients, families, and caregivers transition to life after cancer treatment. We strive to help you balance social, mental and physical health to achieve and maintain your highest quality of life. 

We also provide survivorship care plans (SCP). A SCP is a document that summarizes your diagnosis, treatment, and reasons to contact your health care teams.  This document describes the recommended follow-up plan, and contains wellness tips and resources.  It is designed to be shared with your primary care team.
