The purpose of this study is to conduct a pilot demonstration of implementing SCPs as part of routine practice. An established knowledge translation approach and methods will be used, integrating those who will use SCPs (i.e. patients’ and health care providers) throughout the process. Two distinct cancer sites (testicular and endometrial) will be involved. The project deliverables will include: 1) development of appropriate and relevant SCPs; 2) pilot feasibility testing of the model of implementation 3) use of a multifaceted strategy to implement the use of SCPs; and 4) evaluation of the process of implementation and short-term outcomes. This project is largely focused on improving the experience of the survivorship phase, and ensuring that patients are empowered with the information and support needed to thrive. Using a systematic approach to the development and implementation of SCPs combined with the use of an integrated KT model will help to ensure the sustained and effective use of SCPs in practice and will promote survivorship care planning as a valued component of clinical practice.
