FYI: National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) is an alliance of 28 cancer centers in the United States, most of which are designated by the National Cancer Institute (one of the U.S. National Institutes of Health) as comprehensive cancer centers.

NCCN was created in 1995. It is a national alliance that develops and institutes standards of care for the treatment of cancer and performs outcomes research.

NCCN develops and communicates scientific, evaluative information to better inform the decision-making process between patients and physicians, ultimately improving patient outcomes.

The core resources made available by NCCN are the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®). These guidelines are the recognized standard for clinical policy in oncology and are the most comprehensive and most frequently updated clinical practice guidelines available in any area of medicine. Covering 97 percent of all patients with cancer and updated on a continual basis, the NCCN Guidelines® are developed through and explicit review of evidence (clinical trials, existing treatment protocol, etc.) integrated with expert medical judgment and recommendations by panels that are made up of representatives from the 28 NCCN Member Institutions.
