Patients and their caregiver(s) receive a hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC)
orientation with a Survivorship Navigator (SN) over 90 minutes following their initial
surgical consult. Patients then receive telephone calls over 20-30 minutes from the SN once
weekly for 3 weeks prior to HIPEC. . After HIPEC, patients meet with the SN for 20-30
minutes to discuss adjustments and adaptation to the surgery and hospitalization 3-4 days
post-HIPEC, biweekly for two weeks, and weekly thereafter until hospital discharge. After
hospital discharge, patients receive telephone calls from the SN twice monthly for 1 month.
