For health care providers, we offer a comprehensive Cancer Survivorship E-Learning Series for Primary Care Providers as well as a National Cancer Survivorship Resource Center Toolkit that covers clinical follow-up care guidelines for breast, colorectal, head and neck and prostate cancer survivors. The Generation and Translation of Evidence (GATE) Community of Practice provides relevant information on patient navigation and cancer survivorship topics for researchers, clinicans and patients or caregivers. View the latest research findings, practice-based insights or interactive learning sessions that offer practical takeaways for improving patient care.
For comprehensive cancer control professionals, we offer the Technical Assistance Portal (TAP), which is a centralized website that pulls together existing and new technical assistance offerings. Users can search for comprehensive cancer control resources produced not only by the Institute for Patient-Centered Initiatives and Health Equity but also by National Comprehensive Cancer Control-funded state programs, cancer control coalitions and other stakeholders. The website also hosts upcoming and past webinars and collaborative learning opportunities for health professionals and a variety of other comprehensive cancer control-related events from other organizations.
If you are a provider in the D.C. area, we also accept patient referrals and work as quickly as possible to ensure that your patient is connected with one of our specialists as soon as possible. To refer a patient, please call 202-741-2210.
