In 2018 ACCC developed the Financial Advocacy Services Guidelines to support cancer programs and practices with proactively addressing patients’ financial concerns along the cancer care continuum, so patients can access high-quality care for a better quality of life. These guidelines were developed with the input and guidance of the ACCC Financial Advocacy Network Advisory Committee and financial advocates working on the frontlines.
As the healthcare landscape continues to change and the role of oncology financial advocates evolves, ACCC’s Financial Advocacy Network is collaborating with its partners to update these guidelines using a consensus-based process.
ACCC is seeking nominations of individuals to participate in this consensus-based process to update the Financial Advocacy Guidelines. Participants will be recognized and acknowledged by name in the resulting guidelines and any related publication(s). Eligible individuals will have extensive knowledge of financial advocacy programs and services in oncology and the populations they are intended to serve. Knowledge should have been gained through employment, advocacy, academic research, and/or personal experience of receiving financial advocacy services as a patient or caregiver. ACCC is seeking nominees within the following roles:

The current edition of the Financial Advocacy Services Guidelines was developed by the Financial Advocacy Guidelines Task Force.
