GP support needed: Shared e-Care plan study for follow-up of colorectal and breast cancers

This research evaluates shared care using a new interactive e-care plan being implemented through cancer services in Prince of Wales and St George public and private hospitals. Through the e-care plan GPs, cancer specialists and patients share information about follow-up tasks and responsibilities, results, measures and notes.  The findings will be used to develop better shared care programs and if successful the program will be widely implemented.

Cancer specialists are now asking patients if they are interested in participating in the research. If so, their GP is then contacted about participating.
