We encourage healthcare providers to explore our information about clinical practice guidelines and strategies for approaching the long-term care of cancer survivors.
NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines
The National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) issued NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology for Survivorship. These guidelines are developed and updated through an evidence-based process in which multidisciplinary panels of experts integrate comprehensive clinical and scientific data with the judgment of the panel members and other experts drawn from NCCN member institutions, including Memorial Sloan Kettering.
The NCCN Guidelines for Survivorship covers many distinct areas, including: anxiety and depression, cognitive function, exercise, fatigue, immunizations and infections, pain, sexual function, and sleep disorders. They include a sample assessment tool with questions on each of the key criteria covered in the guidelines. Clinicians can access the complete library of NCCN guidelines online.
