A patient referral form for the American Cancer Society
In the past we advised patients to contact their local American Cancer Society if they were looking for support groups or local services. We have worked with our local ACS chapter to expand this service. From now on, instead of providing the patient with the number to call we will fax a Patient Referral From to the ACS. In response the ACS resource center will contact the patient with information and resources.
The ACS representatives explained that the ACS can help cancer patients and families with many practical needs, even with mowing the lawn, cleaning the house, getting childcare etc. Please do not hesitate to refer patients to them with these concerns.
A new page on our Intranet explains the procedure in detail.
I has been added to the Procedures section.
