What Is the National Comprehensive Cancer Network?

The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) is a nonprofit alliance of 27 cancer centers throughout the U.S. Experts from NCCN cancer centers diagnose and treat all cancers, with a particular focus on complex, aggressive, or uncommon cancers.

The National Comprehensive Cancer Network also develops the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology, a set of recommendations designed to help health care professionals diagnose, treat, and manage cancer patient care. These guidelines have also been translated into the NCCN Treatment Summaries for People with Cancer, which help people with cancer better understand cancer diagnosis and treatment options.

The NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology

The NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology detail cancer management decisions and interventions for most cancers. The recommendations are based on the best evidence available, so they are continuously updated and revised to reflect new and promising research. The goal of the guidelines is to help oncologists make major treatment decisions for patients by providing quick access to data.
