Financial Advocacy Guidelines

ACCC Financial Advocacy Services Guidelines

ACCC has developed the Financial Advocacy Services Guidelines to support the goal of proactively addressing financial issues along the cancer care continuum to help patients gain access to high-quality care for a better quality of life.

These guidelines have been developed with the input and guidance of the Advisory Committee for the ACCC Financial Advocacy Network and financial advocates working on the frontlines of care.

As the healthcare landscape continues to change and the role of oncology financial advocates evolves, ACCC offers these guidelines to assist programs in strengthening their financial advocacy services and to complement the resources available through the ACCC Financial Advocacy Network.

Access a summary of questions asked and answered during the live ACCC Financial Advocacy Services Town Hall webinar.

Below is a summary of how these notifications may impact oncology.
  •  Compassionate Healthcare
    Krista Nelson, MSW, LCSW, OSW-C, FAOSW
    Many times, being present, allowing the grief, and letting our patients know they aren’t alone is the only “treatment” we have. So, what sustains us? How do we do this every day?
  •  A Focus on Our Staff
    Sibel Blau, MD
    At Northwest Medical Specialties, we, too, face challenges from staff stress and exhaustion. To address and overcome these challenges, our management team has made it a priority to bolster the resiliency of our staff.
  •  Trending Now in Cancer Care
    Alexandria Howson, PhD
    Rather than fielding its annual Trending Now in Cancer Care survey while cancer programs were experiencing unprecedented challenges due to the extended public health emergency, ACCC chose to facilitate conversations with its members to capture the lived experiences of the most pertinent issues impacting oncology practice and care delivery.
