Resources support excellent patient care






The internet provides a wealth of information on all topics imaginable. Health professional education to support cancer patients is no exception, and a Google search of these words provides 122,000,000 choices. While the quantity of this information is impressive, it is difficult to comment on its quality.

Cancer Care Nova Scotia (CCNS) has recently reorganized the health professional section of its website to make it easier for health professionals to find the resources they need to support patient teaching.

CCNS Web resources include: patient education standards and guidelines, orientation booklets for newly diagnosed patients, medication information sheets, the Living Well with Cancer patient education series, sources of patient information in languages other than English and a list of reputable websites. All are designed to support health professionals in meeting their patients’ educational needs. The information is regularly updated and new resources are added as needed.
