Our Patient Resource Center is a full-service, multimedia oncology library with a comprehensive assortment of books, videos and audiotapes. A diagnosis of cancer often brings with it a complex set of medical issues and can require patients to make important decisions about their care. Often, patients want to learn more about their illness and treatment - quickly. We implemented the Patient Resource Center as part of our commitment to creating a supportive atmosphere for patients and providing tools and information they need to help educate them about their illness. In addition to the materials provided, the Center identifies resources for further research, including cancer-related newsletters, pamphlets and community support groups. Internet access is also available.
