Program Guidelines
The Association of Community Cancer Centers Cancer Program Guidelines* have been established to assist cancer programs that want to develop and/or maintain a comprehensive interdisciplinary program that meets the needs of cancer patients and their families.

These guidelines were developed to reflect the optimal components for a cancer program. The guidelines are not intended to act as an accrediting or credentialing mechanism and are not a list of standards, such as those published by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. The guidelines should not be a surrogate for independent medical judgment; they serve only as the term implies: as guidelines to help programs meet the optimal attributes.

*Revised 2009
Nutrition Services Guideline revised March 2012
Patient Advocacy and Financial Services Guideline added October 2012
