ASCO Patient Guides are easy-to-read summaries based on ASCO Clinical Practice Guidelines that are designed to help your patients understand the recommended treatment for different types of cancer and cancer-related symptoms. They provide a patient-oriented view of the guidelines: providing background information, discussing the recommendations, explaining what those recommendations mean for patients, and providing a list of questions to ask their doctors for more information.
