NCI Web Site Consolidates Supportive and Palliative Care Information

Visitors to NCI’s Web site will now find it easier to get extensive information on supportive care and palliative care. NCI’s Office of Communications and Education combined two sections of the site into one, called Coping with Cancer: Supportive and Palliative Care, with improved, streamlined organization. A single menu page highlights and links to key resources in the section. The design of the page was refined through iterative testing with patients and caregivers.

Featured topics include managing the physical and emotional effects of cancer and treatment, finding health care services, financial and legal concerns, and information for caregivers, friends, and family. Information for cancer survivors and links to clinical trials testing new supportive and palliative care interventions are also available.
