NCI develops, implements, and evaluates programs across the cancer continuum. To complement these programs, NCI has developed a large variety of educational materials, many of them designed for patients. These resources are developed based on literature reviews, expert research, and extensive audience testing through interviews and/or focus groups with health professionals and the target audience. Some materials of particular note are described below. All materials can be accessed directly through the NCI Web site,, or ordered through NCI�s Cancer Information Service at 1-800-4-CANCER.
