Navigating through Survivorship Care

There is a need to provide cancer survivors and their healthcare providers with a comprehensive survivorship care plan (SCP). The SCP includes a summary of the received treatment and a follow-up plan. This SCP assists cancer survivors and their caregivers to navigate through survivorship phase.

The Survivor Care App can read a QR code in which a personalized care plan is encoded. This QR code is generated by the treating physician on this website. The SCP is tailored for the individual survivor of testicular cancer. The app provides survivors with a comprehensive overview of their care plan which allows them to manage to-do’s and appointments with their caregivers and set reminders.

The Survivor Care App has been developed by the University Medical Center Groningen in The Netherlands.

The app can be downloaded from the App Store, search for "Survivor Care".
