Our 24/7 cancer helpline provides information and answers for people dealing with cancer. We can connect you with trained cancer information specialists who will answer questions about a cancer diagnosis and provide guidance and a compassionate ear.
Our highly trained specialists are available 24/7 via phone and on weekdays can assist through video calls and online chat. We connect patients, caregivers, and family members with essential services and resources at every step of their cancer journey. Ask us how you can get involved and support the fight against cancer. Some of the topics we can assist with include:
For medical questions, we encourage you to review our information with your doctor.
Health services research: Evaluating outcomes of care by using multiple data sources in order to develop tools, models, and strategies aimed at delivering high-quality care across the cancer continuum that is risk stratified, safe, effective, and coordinated
Multi-level research about access to care:
Behavioral economics and health policy research: Studying ways to propagate the beneficial aspects of health policy, regulatory, health insurance, or economic factors on behaviors that affect care across the cancer continuum—or to mitigate the adverse effects and unintended consequences
Epidemiologic research: Investigating environmental root causes that affect the risk of cancer and its care across the cancer continuum, including microenvironmental causes, such as pollutants and radiations, and macroenvironmental causes, including social, economic, and political conditions.
Implementation science research: Searching for mechanisms to optimize the uptake of evidence from clinical trials and evidence-based practices into clinical and community practice for maximal impact.
