NCCN Patient Resources Earn Prestigious Awards

National Comprehensive Cancer Network

PLYMOUTH MEETING, PA — The National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) has received new recognitions for its patient education materials. The NCCN Guidelines for Patients®: Colon Cancer earned a Gold Award from the Hermes Creative Awards in the digital publications category. Additionally, the Kidney Cancer guidelines received an Award of Distinction from The Communicator Awards for print content.

The NCCN’s patient webinar series also garnered accolades. The webinar on Uterine Cancer was named a Gold Winner by the Viddy Awards, while the session on Inflammatory Breast Cancer earned a Silver Digital Health Award.

The NCCN Guidelines for Patients offer over 70 books designed to provide accessible information on cancer prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, and supportive care. These guidelines are based on the continuously updated NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines, which are used globally to inform cancer treatment decisions.

These resources are freely available online at NCCN.org and through the NCCN Patient Guides for Cancer App, funded by the NCCN Foundation®. Printed versions can be purchased on Amazon.

In 2024, the Hermes Creative Awards saw over 6,500 entries across 200 categories. The Communicator Awards, judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, had more than 3,000 entries this year.

Patrick Delaney, Executive Director of the NCCN Foundation, expressed pride in these achievements. “These resources put expert-vetted cancer-related information in the hands of people with, or at risk of, cancer everywhere,” he said. Delaney emphasized that the guidelines, available in multiple languages and formats, include glossaries, diagrams, and suggested questions for doctors.

NCCN’s webinars also cover various cancer topics in several languages, supported by the NCCN Foundation. Last year, their Early-Stage Prostate Cancer webinar also won a Digital Health Gold award.
