Get Permission

The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) recently launched a new video series for people newly diagnosed with cancer through its patient education website, Cancer.Net. This initiative was made possible by a grant from the LIVESTRONG Foundation to the Conquer Cancer Foundation.

After a cancer diagnosis, patients are faced with numerous challenges, including managing the shock and fear associated with cancer for themselves and others, language barriers, complex medical decision-making, and the potential financial burden in receiving care. The new video series, titled “Navigating Challenges: Perspectives from Survivors and Doctors,” is aimed at helping patients with these challenges, offering practical advice and guidance on navigating cancer care and treatment in today’s health-care system, and addressing some of the barriers to high quality care that patients may face.

The video titles in the series include:

  • Talking With Your Cancer Care Team
  • Making Decisions About Your Cancer Treatment
  • Managing the Cost of Your Cancer Care
  • Finding Emotional Support After a Cancer Diagnosis

The “Navigating Challenges” video series is available to patients at no charge at cancer.net/navigatingchallenges or via Cancer.Net’s channel on YouTube at cancerdotnet.
