The purpose of this project is to describe the development and implementation of cancer SCPs at three health systems’ cancer centers in a rural state. Collectively, these centers serve most cancer patients residing in SD, making the partnership across the cancer centers innovative. Each of the three health systems and their affiliated cancer centers is unique in its history, culture, and infrastructure. In addition, each cancer center was at a different point in the development and implementation of SCPs at the time of this project. Therefore, a description of the processes, successes, and challenges involved in the development and implementation of SCPs at each health system provides useful insights to support the adoption of SCP’s in similar low-population states or regions.
