NCCN Updates Library of NCCN Framework™

By Jorge Bacigalupo, Global Business Development Specialist, NCCN

The National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) has developed the NCCN Framework for Resource Stratification of NCCN Guidelines (NCCN Framework™) for Head and Neck Cancers: Lip and Oral Cavity V1.2016 (preliminary version). Additionally, the NCCN Framework™ for Cervical Cancer has updated to V1.2016 (final version).

The NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®) are used widely around the world, including in a number of low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) where certain diagnostic tests and/or treatment approaches may be unavailable.

“The goal of NCCN Framework is to extend the use of NCCN Guidelines globally and especially in lower resource regions,” said Robert W. Carlson MD, Chief Executive Officer, NCCN.

The NCCN Framework™ for Breast, Cervical, Gastric, Head and Neck, Hepatobiliary, Non-Small Cell Lung, and Prostate Cancers are available at
