People diagnosed with cancer often say they were stunned when they heard the news of their diagnosis, and were unable to process what their health-care provider said afterward. Give your patients easy-to-understand information they can take home with them. When the Doctor Says “Cancer” is a 1-page (front and back) fact sheet that provides a general introduction to cancer. It includes descriptions of stage, grade, treatments, ways of coping, words to know, and questions to ask the health-care team.
Find this fact sheet and a library of other titles at cancer.net/factsheets, or order high-quality copies for your practice at cancer.net/estore. ASCO members save 20% and receive free domestic shipping. ■
