Educating Nurses in Tanzania
OncoLink has been working on an Oncology Nursing Education Program in Tanzania, Africa for the past 2 years. Our first class of nurses has recently graduated from the program. Read about this amazing experience and how much these nurses are able to do with so little - it is inspiring!
Doesn't their story make you want to get involved? You can! Join our Nurses Forum and share your expertise with this group of nurses. They will be posting practice questions that come up at Ocean Road Cancer Institute and want our input!

Cancer Risk Program featured on Philly.com
Congratulations to our What's My Risk? Team. OncoLink has teamed up with Philly.com, the website for the leading Philadelphia newspaper, The Inquirer, for a special month-long project. A daily fact about cancer risk has been featured on Philly.com/health. What's My Risk? is designed to help users learn about their personal risk for cancer and what they can do to decrease that risk. Suggest this great program to friends and patients' family members when they are wondering about their own risk of cancer.
Is your institution/practice planning for the upcoming changes to the Commission on Cancer Standards?
