Cancer survivorship program offers telehealth

December 26, 2017 Swedish Blogger

Telesurvivorship is a Swedish service that makes it possible for patients who have completed their cancer treatment to have a comprehensive, face-to-face visit with an experienced nurse practitioner. A virtual visit with the nurse practitioner from the Cancer Survivorship Program is available to those who have completed their treatment for cancer.

Our nurse practitioners have significant expertise that can help you to understand the treatment that you had and discuss resources that you can use going forward. You will also have a chance to review the treatment summary and care plan document, and to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

You are able to have a conversation with the nurse practitioner via the internet, using your smartphone, tablet or computer with a camera. This is a convenient way to get information and support remotely, delivered to your home or office.

Key features

  • Easy to use, secure platform that allows you to see and interact with the nurse practitioner, similar to FaceTime®
  • Available to adult patients who have completed treatment for cancer
  • Active engagement of Cancer Survivorship nurse practitioner
  • Comprehensive review of specific treatment information and follow-up care

The Cancer Survivorship Program nurse practitioners have extensive oncology experience. Each of them has a background in multidisciplinary oncology care and collaboration with other providers, resulting in significant support for and coordination of resources for people that have completed their cancer treatment.
