CancerNet Resources

Posted 8/26/2016

Posted in

  Although I often write about and refer you to their materials, you may not have really noticed Cancer Net, the patient information arm of ASCO. Identifying accurate and reliable internet sources of information can be tricky, and this is one of the best. There are certainly others that are specific to one cancer type or general, but there is nothing that is more extensive, user friendly, and helpful.

  Today I am giving you a link and information about their Podcasts. As you scroll down, you will see that there are many available. If you explore the larger CancerNet site, you will find information in other formats, too. Many people especially appreciate podcasts because you can listen to them while you do other things.

Explaining Podcasts

A Cancer.Net Podcast is a pre-recorded audio file in which a specific cancer-related topic is addressed in order to assist people with cancer. A podcast can be listened to online (through the Internet) or downloaded to your computer free of charge. After downloading, a Cancer.Net Podcast may also be transferred to an MP3 audio player, such as an iPod. To download or listen to a Cancer.Net Podcast on your computer, you will need software capable of playing MP3 files, such as Windows Media Player or QuickTime.

You may also want to subscribe to Cancer.Net Podcasts, so that new offerings are automatically downloaded to your personal computer as soon as they are available. To subscribe, copy-and-paste the link below into software that allows podcast subscriptions, such as iTunes or Juice
