Find Different Sources of Information
Health related information can often be found in clinics, in pamphlets in waiting areas, in patient and family libraries and on the Internet. Information about how to manage cancer in the context of everyday life can be found through classes and community services and from family, friends and other people who have had cancer (peers).
Information about living with cancer in the context of everyday life is often the biggest information gap because it is not addressed by the health care system. For many people, other survivors are the best source of information about everyday life with cancer.
