The program contains a set of basic skills and special topics. Each scenario is inspired by true stories of real cancer patients. The Cancer Survival Toolbox is for people at any point in their care. It is used by patients, health care professionals, and by individuals or in support group settings.
Produced through a unique collaboration between the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS), the Oncology Nursing Society (ONS), the Association of Oncology Social Workers (AOSW), and the National Association of Social Workers (NASW), with a grant from Genentech, Inc., the Toolbox encourages people with cancer and their caregivers to take a more active role in their care.
