In response to the crisis in Ukraine, we are creating a Clinician Volunteer Corps to work in tandem with American Cancer Society National Cancer Information Center (NCIC) team members to field inquiries from patients, family members, and clinicians in Eastern Europe.
NCIC specialists will field calls and then transfer them to the Clinician Volunteer Corps representatives. The clinician volunteers will address the calls, representing their own expertise and not speaking on behalf of the American Cancer Society or the American Society of Clinical Oncology. If you are an oncologist or oncology nurse who speaks English and/or Central and Eastern European languages, please volunteer today.
Once your form is reviewed, we’ll be in touch with next steps. Thank you for considering this important opportunity to assist cancer patients during this extremely difficult time.
The NCIC fields hundreds of thousands of calls, chats, and social media inquiries from patients, family members, and clinical professionals annually. NCIC specialists answer questions related to cancer including prevention, treatment, and side effect management. They can also connect people with resources to help them navigate their cancer journey.
The American Cancer Society and the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) are working together to share our wealth of cancer information, so we can empower more patients, families, and caregivers to make informed decisions about their care.
