If you are an oncologist or oncology health professional looking to help your patients with their educational needs, please know that ASCO is here to help you.
ASCO believes that the best cancer care starts with the best cancer information. ASCO's patient website, Cancer.Net, offers medical information on more than 120 types of cancer and related syndromes, clinical trials, managing side effects, caregiving, and how to cope with the emotional and social effects of living with cancer. From the time of diagnosis, through treatment, and into long-term survivorship, Cancer.Net (www.cancer.net ) has easy-to-understand, trusted content, vetted by an ASCO Editorial Board  of more than 150 medical, surgical, radiation, and pediatric oncologists, oncology nurses, social workers, and patient advocates.
Help Your Patients Discover Cancer.Net
After a diagnosis of cancer, many people turn to the Internet as a source of information about their disease. Unfortunately, misleading and inaccurate information about cancer is widespread online. Share Cancer.Net with your patients to feel confident that they have access to an authoritative and timely online educational resource.
