We believe that, when faced with cancer, it is important to understand all of your options. Ideally, a layperson would be able to access all the information that a medical professional can access, but this is not the case. The barriers are arcane professional terminology that impedes your web searching and obscure places where the data that you need is stored or located. However, CancerTreatmentToday.org aims to offer as much information as possible to our site visitors. Therefore, we not only provide articles written in such a way that a layperson can generally understand, but we also make available the information written for medical professionals. The articles for the medical professional are the same that you viewed as a layperson but with the scientific terminology and authoritative references. Having read the lay text you will easily understand the professional version and can follow up on the referenced articles, guidelines and textbooks. We thus offer all of our site visitors – layperson and professional alike – the opportunity to view content that is written for those with an educational background in the medical field. We hope that this will give a layperson a more in-depth view of the topic they choose to research and result in better self-education. This should lead a layperson to ask more educated and pointed questions about their care and course of action when faced with cancer and cancer treatment options. And for the medical professional, it provides an authoritative and up to date summary of topical issues in the field, with recent references.
To directly access articles written in professional medical jargon, click on the link “Professionals” within the Information for You section on any page. To view layperson versions of the articles, use the “Lay Portal” within the Information for You section. Within any article, you will have the opportunity to click a link to the layperson or professional version, as the case may be.
We also have recent cancer news on the site, as well as resources, sponsor links and other useful information. Our goal is to provide the right information that you need, when you need it.
