The National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) has published a newly translated Italian version of the NCCN Guidelines for Patients® for stomach cancer, funded by No Stomach for Cancer. Over the past year, the NCCN Foundation also worked with the Kidney Cancer Association to translate patient guidelines for kidney cancer into Chinese, Czech, German, and Spanish.
In 2017 alone, the NCCN Guidelines for Patients were viewed more than 8 million times by nearly 400,000 individuals worldwide. They are written in plain language and include patient-friendly elements, such as questions to ask doctors, a glossary of terms, and medical illustrations.
The library currently contains 39 different patient guidelines, and all are available online at NCCN.org.
