NCCN aims to improve the care given to patients
with cancer. NCCN staff work with experts to create
helpful programs and resources for many stakeholders.
Stakeholders include health providers, patients,
businesses, and others. One resource is the series of
booklets for patients called the NCCN Patient Guidelines.
Each booklet presents the standard of care for a type of
cancer.

The patient booklets are based on guidelines written
for doctors. These guidelines are called the NCCN
Guidelines. They give a step-by-step course of care that
many cancer doctors follow. Panels of experts create
the NCCN Guidelines. Most of the experts are from the
21 NCCN Member Institutions. Panelists may include
surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists,
and patient advocates. Recommendations in the NCCN
Guidelines are based on clinical trials and the experience
of the panelists.
The people involved in the making of the guidelines
for patients and doctors are listed next, starting with
