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.
