Supportive Oncology Patient Handouts
The Supportive Oncology Collaborative, consisting of 10 Chicagoland hospitals and one in Peoria, Illinois including over 200 oncology clinicians and experts, developed 50+ Patient Handouts for a variety of common concerns and issues affecting cancer patients, their loved ones and caregivers.
The 60+ Patient Handouts provide access to information about supportive care services, health concerns/issues, and a listing of local, national and self-help resources. The content of each handout has been compiled from a variety of nationally recognized science and medical based resources and condensed into a one-page document for a simplified, yet expandable source of information and resources.
Patient Handouts are intended to help patients be informed and empowered to achieve the best possible outcome and quality of life.
