OncoLink Tracys Corner

Oncology social workers (OSWs) provide counseling and other services that can reduce stress for patients and their families before, during and after cancer treatments. Tracy's Corner is a new feature where you can send our Oncology Social Worker, Tracy Lautenbach, and her colleagues, your questions or read previously answered questions.

OncoLink Blogs

The Blog & Monthly Webchats

Our newest blogger, Donna Lee Lista, is a lung cancer survivor. Her blog, Through the Looking Glass, discusses life on “the other side” of a cancer diagnosis.

Our monthly webchats address useful topics with knowledgeable experts. Upcoming chats include Advances in colorectal cancer screening on March 11th and Cancer risk and prevention for African-Americans on April 15th. Contact us if you would like to receive flyers for these events to distribute or display in your setting.


What's New with the LIVESTRONG Care Plan?

We are currently running the seventh version of the LIVESTRONG Care Plan. There are a few visible enhancements in this version, including a healthcare provider version, which allows some tailoring for your patients, and new and improved surgical side effect information.
Version 8 is in the works, with the most noticeable addition being a separate primary care provider summary that patients can take to their PCP. We hope this will help bridge the gap as patients transition from patient to survivor.

Would you like LIVESTRONG Care Plan flyers for your office/unit? Just contact us and we will be happy to send them.  Remember, we love to hear your feedback; it is often your opinions that inspire changes and improvements in the program.
