A Note to Health Care Professionals
We are here to help you help your patients, and in doing so Blueprints of Hope aspires to:
Teach and promote advocacy and communication skills – by working alongside and helping anyone experiencing cancer identify their unmet needs, obtain Treatment Summaries and Survivorship Care Plans, centralize medical records, locate resources, and work with their health care team to effectively address their healthcare problems, and thereby manage the seasons of their disease.
- Focus on programs that promote healthy lifestyles and programs that focus on the prevention of cancer and other chronic diseases or conditions within the realm of cancer survivorship. We are committed to addressing and implementing strategies and interventions that motivate positive behaviors toward healthy living.
Collaborate with the medical community to provide educational opportunities and links to information that relates to the multi-faceted aspects of cancer survivorship – the late and long-term side effects, complementary therapies, and other topics relevant to current issues in cancer survivorship.
Be a leader at providing web-based community resources for all those who have been touched by cancer, including for the health care professionals who are caring for them. This includes identifying and working collaboratively as a link to community resources specifically geared toward cancer survivors.
- Finally, Blueprints of Hope aspires to provide assistance to all who are working with those experiencing cancer to eliminate the barriers to receiving effective and timely treatment, recovery and follow-up care.
