Background

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to disruptions in clinical practice and patient support services, business operations, and research for many cancer programs across the U.S.


In response to member needs, ACCC launched a COVID-19 Resource Center in March 2020 to offer education and tools to community practitioners working directly on the frontlines.

Supported by educational grants, ACCC expanded its COVID-19 resources with a focus on tools needed to navigate initial pandemic preparedness, facilitate recovery planning, and to prepare for the expected surge in patient demand as communities re-open.

The overall goal of the initiative was to provide practical, concise resources to community cancer professionals managing patients with cancer amid COVID-19.

This activity was supported by educational grants from AstraZeneca, Merck, and Pfizer.
