Endometrial cancer is the most common invasive gynaecological cancer in Australia. Despite the fact that review after treatment of early endometrial cancer has not been shown to detect recurrent disease, practice at several hospitals brings women back for specialist hospital review for 5 years after definitive cancer surgery.

Implement an improved model of follow‐up care following hospital treatment for early endometrial cancer.

Evaluation Methods
Quantitative and qualitative.

Seventy‐three of the eligible 81 women undertook the model of care. All general practitioners (GPs) agreed to follow‐up care. Thirty‐one women (42%) and 37 GPs (51%) returned surveys. All women found the nurse consultation very useful or useful with 77% reporting making lifestyle changes and 87% found the GP consultation very useful or useful with 72% reporting making lifestyle changes. Eighty‐nine percent of GPs found the care plan useful, 94% set up patient recall systems, 79% used the care plan to develop their own care plan, 100% felt confident in providing follow‐up care with 91% reporting the care plan and hospital processes improved their confidence. Comparison with the pre‐cohort women showed: higher rates of communication at various care points to GPs (from P < 0.001); more referrals (P < 0.001); and a projected decrease of nine hospital doctor appointments per patient. Discussion With an increasing number of people surviving cancer, in order to address holistic health needs and maintain tertiary service capacity, general practice will be required to provide more follow‐up care. Our model demonstrates an acceptable and quality mechanism for this to occur.
