Patient Resources:

A cancer diagnosis is a serious matter that can sometimes be difficult to process and navigate on your own. That is why the Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins Hospital is committed to helping the patient and their family through a complicated and difficult process. One of the more novel approaches the center takes to cancer care is their position on patient education.

At one time the patient would simply sit back and be guided by the specialists down an unfamiliar and scary path that is cancer. At the KCCC the experts are rejecting this notion and embarking on an aggressive patient education program that leaves the patient with all the necessary information on treatments, prognoses, and the cancer itself. With this information the philosophy is that the patient will be better equipped when facing a battle with cancer. Included in this education are the family members who provide the patient with their primary support systems. Going forward from primary care then, all parties are better prepared to deal with whatever challenges may lie ahead.
