New Translations of NCCN Guidelines® Content Available

Jonathan Larsen, MPP, Manager, Global Business Development

The National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) recently posted a new translation of the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®) for Melanoma in Turkish.  This translation is a direct result of NCCN's inaugural International Day held during the NCCN 18th Annual Conference: Advancing the Standard of Cancer Care™ on March 17, 2013. Physicians from Turkey came to Hollywood, Florida to meet with NCCN Guidelines Panel members and staff to discuss the consideration of Turkish adaptations and/or translation of the NCCN Guidelines® for Melanoma necessary to allow for effective local utilization of the NCCN Guidelines.

Translations were also recently posted of the Distress Thermometer Screening Tool from the NCCN Guidelines for Distress Management in Bahasa Indonesia, Chinese, Korean, and Spanish.

Translations of select NCCN Guidelines and related content are now available in Bahasa Indonesia, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, Korean, and Turkish. To access these resources, please visit NCCN.org.

If you would like to learn more about, translations, regional adaptations of the NCCN Guidelines, or other international programming opportunities, please contact Jonathan Larsen, MPP, Manager, Global Business Development, Larsen@nccn.org.
