IRENE Resources for Providers

Evidence-Based Resources for Cancer Survivors

Description:

The handout, Evidence-Based Resources for Cancer Survivors, is a 2-page handout containing evidence-based, regional and online cancer survivorship resources that primary care providers can utilize in their daily practice.  Each region of Iowa (i.e. Northwest, Northeast, Southwest, Southeast, and Central) has its own handout.  Recent research shows that cancer survivors desire comprehensive care that focuses on their physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual needs.  To address these aforementioned needs, this handout contains regional and online resources for the following evidence-based interventions:

  • Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
  • LIVESTRONG at the YMCA
  • Other Exercise (Strength-Training and Flexibility)
  • Yoga
  • Mental Health Resources
  • Sleep Hygiene

This handout also identifies the name and type of resource (including anticipated time), physical and/or web addresses, contact information, and any associated costs (if applicable).  As a result, cancer survivors and their providers will benefit from having an efficient, evidence-based communication tool for addressing comprehensive needs, and the patient will benefit from having the necessary information to seek out the resources.
