Cancer Patient Education Network (CPEN)

The Cancer Patient Education Network (CPEN) is a professional society of healthcare providers who share experiences and best practices on all aspects of cancer patient education. Members include health educators, nurses, chaplains, social workers, researchers, and others who have an aspect of their job dedicated to cancer patient education. This sharing takes place primarily through a listserv, committee participation, and annual meetings.

CPEN promotes and provides models of excellence in patient, family, and community education across the continuum of care through networking, mentoring, collaborating, sharing best practice resources, guidelines, standards and evidence-based research.
