About This Project

Practice patterns and resources are not well established for patients with less common cancers such as renal cell carcinoma (RCC). In addition, community cancer programs are challenged to keep up with evolving treatments and the availability of clinical trials for patients with renal cell carcinoma. The ACCC Improving Quality Care in Renal Cell Carcinoma project seeks to improve the care for patients with this disease and their families treated at community cancer programs.

Project Objectives

  • To raise awareness about the special needs of caring for less common cancers in the community setting, including how to stay up-to-date on the latest clinical information and treatment protocols around renal cell carcinoma.
  • To identify effective practices, including education materials and resources, for supporting renal cell carcinoma patients through diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up, and how to best implement these effective practices in the community setting.
  • To establish Community Resource Centers (CRCs)* for renal cell carcinoma in which community-based programs with expertise in meeting the unique needs of patients with renal cell carcinoma are available to answer questions and provide direction to other programs.
    *Note: The Community Resource Centers feature of this initiative is no longer available.

ACCC is pleased to partner on this project with Kidney Cancer Association, an organization dedicated specifically to the eradication of death and suffering from renal cancers.
