Clinical Practice Guidelines

The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology™ is the recognized standard for clinical policy in the oncology community. These guidelines are updated at least annually in a consensus-driven process with explicit review of the evidence by multidisciplinary panels of expert physicians from NCCN member institutions. The breadth and scope of this collaborative effort, which now covers more than 95% of all cancers, represents a significant advance beyond any previously developed guidelines. The NCCN guidelines have become the most widely used in oncology practice. Treatment recommendations are specific and are being implemented through performance measurement. In addition, the NCCN guideline panels address cancer detection; risk assessment and reduction; and supportive care areas such as nausea and vomiting, distress management, cancer-related fatigue, and cancer pain management.
