The award-winning Cancer Survival Toolbox® is a free, self-learning audio program that has been developed by leading cancer organizations to help people develop important skills to better meet and understand the challenges of their illness. The program contains a set of basic skills to help navigate a diagnosis and special topics on key issues faced by people with cancer. It is given to newly diagnosed patients as well as those transitioning off treatment, used by patient navigators, offered in patient resource libraries, provided at survivorship programs and conferences, and listened to in a support group setting.
Produced through a unique collaboration between the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS), the Oncology Nursing Society (ONS), the National Association of Social Workers (NASW), with a grant from Genentech, Inc., the Cancer Survival Toolbox encourages people with cancer and their caregivers to take a more active role in their treatment and care. The audio program can be listened to on the internet as well as downloaded for future use. The Toolbox is available in English and Spanish.
