New Beginnings Survivorship Program at MidState Medical Center's Palladino Family Cancer Center
New Beginnings at the Palladino Family Cancer Center began in 2009.
Components of the survivorship program include:
- A treatment summary provided to each patient by his/her medical oncologist or radiation oncologist at the end of treatment
- Each patient, regardless of site of cancer diagnosis, navigates through the treatment phase of the cancer journey with a patient notebook which includes areas to collect treatment, education and support information
- At the conclusion of treatment, the summary is developed from information contained in the individual notebook
- All patients are encouraged to attend the first survivorship program following completion of treatment
