Coming Soon! NCCN Patient and Caregiver Resources on NCCN.org
In August 2013, the National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) will launch the NCCN Patient and Caregiver Resources section of NCCN.org. This new section of NCCN.org will replace NCCN.com, the current NCCN website devoted to patients, and will feature new tools and resources to help people with cancer and their caregivers navigate cancer diagnoses, treatment, and survivorship.
NCCN Patient and Caregiver Resources will house the library of NCCN Guidelines for Patients®, which are currently available for 12 different cancer types, and will feature a new, comprehensive patient glossary that includes terms from each of the published NCCN Guidelines for Patients®, as well as a searchable list of advocacy and support groups, and patient and payment assistance programs. Patients will also be able to access expert articles and tools, such as a downloadable version of the NCCN Distress Thermometer, to prepare for conversations with their treatment teams. Further, users of NCCN Patient and Caregiver Resources on NCCN.org will have the ability to search for nearby NCCN Member Institutions, as well as actively enrolling clinical trials.
Users of the site will be able to register to receive updates from NCCN when new and updated NCCN Guidelines for Patients® are published, as well as when new resources are made available.
Look for further communication regarding the launch of NCCN Patient and Cargiver Resources on NCCN.org in upcoming issues of NCCN eBulletin.
