End of Treatment Summary (EOTS)
Once treatment is finished an end of treatment summary is completed.
This is a short document completed by the healthcare team, often the Cancer Clinical Nurse Specialist, which states information about the diagnosis, side effects of treatment, signs and symptoms of recurrence and who to contact with any concerns.
It is then shared with the patient and their primary care team to inform them of any actions required. The GP can then update the records and use the document as a basis for conducting the Cancer Care Review.
Treatment Summaries can be completed manually on paper or electronically on hospital clinical systems.
There is a specific SNOMED code associated with EOTS so they are easily identifiable on GP systems.
