Knowing how important it is for our patients and their loved ones to have timely access to cancer-related information, we are sharing the following resources. These resources have updated oncologist-approved information that will help patients and carers make informed decisions.
To make the best and most informed health care decisions, patients and families must have timely, comprehensive, oncologist-approved information, and this is where Cancer.Net comes into action. A patient information website of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), which comprises over 45,000 expert members in cancer care, Cancer.Net offers the best cancer information. All content on the website is reviewed by a board consisting of over 150 surgical, medical, pediatric, and radiation oncologists, nurses, social workers, patient advocates, and physician assistants.
The content is also reviewed by the ASCO editorial staff, for easy readability.
Established in 1994, OncoLink was the first website on the internet offering cancer information. A team of expert oncology professionals maintains the high-quality content on the website. They know exactly what sort of information is being sought by cancer patients, their caregivers, and healthcare practitioners. Whether it is information on treatment for new patients or tips to deal with side effects, OncoLink has a massive database of content, which is continually updated. Patients and healthcare professionals get access to educational material that includes psychosocial support, survivorship care plans, treatment education, and more.
With the availability of such quality content, patients feel empowered when it comes to making informed treatment decisions, so they can be their own best advocates.
