Our resources encourage dialogue between cancer patients and survivors and their health care team. We have created a selection of resources for use in daily practice covering issues for people living with, through, and beyond cancer. We hope that you will be able to use the following resources to help empower your patients.
Patient Tools by NCCS
Cancer Survival Toolbox : Hear conversations between patients and doctors to find solutions to real problems faced throughout a cancer diagnosis with the Cancer Survival Toolbox® audio program.
Employment Rights : Help your patients understand their employment rights when facing cancer.
Self Advocacy : Help your patients take charge of their care by encouraging them to ask questions, speak up and advocate for their needs.
Talking With Your Doctor : Wouldn’t it be helpful if your patients knew what to ask and how to communicate with you about their cancer? Provide your patients with a tool to help them learn when and how to ask the right questions.
Remaining Hopeful : Provide cancer patients and survivors with tools to maintain hope during this difficult journey through survivorship.
One way to help make sure you and your patient understand each other is by using cancer care plans. (Click here)
