Publications That Keep You Ahead of the Competition
ACCC members consistently give ACCC publications high marks for their timeliness and usefulness. Experts in the field of oncology contribute to ACCC's publications and provide a solution-based approach to educating oncology healthcare professionals about streamlining and improving cancer services, practice management trends and techniques, legislative issues, and technological innovations.
Oncology Issues, the official journal of the Association of Community Cancer Centers, is the only oncology-related publication devoted to policy, management, and financial issues of concern to cancer care providers. Featured topics include cancer program and oncology practice improvement, oncology reimbursement and economics, community cancer center profiles, and regulatory and legislative issues affecting cancer care professionals.
Reimbursement and Patient Assistance Programs: A Guide for Community Cancer Centers, brings together information on pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical patient assistance programs and reimbursement resources. The digital edition allows users to link directly from the online guide to websites offering program information and enrollment forms.
Over the past year a series of articles in Oncology Issues highlighted the experiences of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Community Cancer Centers Program (NCCCP) sites in meeting the program’s goals. Now the article series is available online: The NCCCP—Enhancing Access, Improving Quality of Care, and Expanding Research in the Community Setting.
Oncology Issues Supplements focus on single topics of interest to the oncology community, and explore comprehensive survivorship services, cancer care patient navigation services, breast care services, nutrition services, pain management, symptom management, and more.
Surveys. ACCC examines Cancer Care Trends and publishes annual survey results as a joint project between ACCC and Eli Lilly. ACCC's 2009 and 2010 surveys are available online. On other fronts, ACCC encourages cancer program administrators employed at ACCC-Member Cancer Programs to take an annual online survey.
Cancer Program Guidelines reflect the optimal components of a cancer program and have been established to assist cancer programs that want to develop and/or maintain a comprehensive inter-disciplinary program that meets the needs of cancer patients and their families.
