ACCC's Center for Provider Education has focused on three critical components of multidisciplinary cancer care: cancer nutritional support, survivorship, and financial counseling to patients.
ACCC launched this project to:
- Identify barriers to access to care that patient navigation can address
- Increase successful implementation of patient navigation services
- Refine staffing models
- Establish effective metrics for measuring patient navigation services internally and for benchmarking patient navigation services against other community cancer centers.
Learn about five model patient navigation efforts underway at ACCC member programs. Find sample tools including pre–assessment forms, intake summaries, referrals forms, patient satisfaction surveys, outcomes measures, and more.
This ACCC project explores multidisciplinary programs that address cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. You'll find a number of practical tools and articles–model programs, survivorship care templates, and more—designed to help your cancer program build, strengthen, and expand comprehensive survivorship services.
The successes we have reaped in cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment have brought about a corresponding increase in cancer survivors. These survivors are not simply "walking away" from their "cancer experience." Instead, they are choosing to participate in survivorship groups; they are looking for additional resources; and they are becoming more informed about their disease and what to expect in the future.
The Financial Information and Learning Network for Community–Based Cancer Programs is designed to provide needed resources and expand the skills and knowledge base of providers who deal directly with patients on complex financial issues surrounding their cancer diagnosis and treatment.
