A survey of 245 community oncology providers found that despite widespread enthusiasm for survivorship care plans (SCPs) among primary care providers and survivors of cancer, the provision of SCPs by oncology providers will likely remain limited unless oncology practices receive additional resources to overcome significant barriers to implementation. Tempered enthusiasm for SCPs was noted among oncology providers, many of whom 1) perceived limited value for survivors or 2) did not believe themselves to be responsible for SCP dissemination.
