Summary

This app pulls together USA-based guidelines for cancer patients.

It was developed by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, a not-for-profit alliance of 27 leading 

centres dedicated to improving the quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of cancer care.

The app aims to give people with cancer:

  • easy-to-understand resources on disease, diagnosis and treatment options
  • an understanding of the clinical practice guidelines used by healthcare professionals around the world to determine the best way to treat a patient with cancer. 

The app includes:

  • information on options for cancer care that are most likely to have the best results.
  • questions to ask your doctor
  • patient-friendly illustrations
  • glossaries of terms used in cancer care 
  • one-page NCCN Quick Guide™ sheets also summarise key points in the NCCN Guidelines.

Reviews

Reviewer: National Comprehensive Cancer Network, the not for profit organisation that developed the app.
Review:

“NCCN Guidelines for Patients®, patient-friendly translations of the NCCN Guidelines®, are meant to help patients with cancer talk with their physicians about the best treatment options for their disease. 

The NCCN Guidelines for Patients along with one- to two- page NCCN Quick Guide™ sheets summarising key points in the NCCN Guidelines for Patients are now available through the mobile app.”
