Cancer Treatment Today is devoted to making available short overviews of new treatments, promising approaches and research in oncology available to the public. Each article focuses on a specific diagnostic or treatment issue in Cancer Medicine and is based on the general consensus in the field of oncology and related areas. These articles are well researched and can be accessed in a “Lay” formulation or “Professional” version. They are supported by current references and provide clear, concise overviews available to all those who need them. There is no other web resource available to the public of this quality, authority and wealth of content. All recommendations are based on professional society guidelines and credible medical evidence, but in the final account it represents an individual understanding of the field and a personal synthesis of the available information.

The key to understanding what we uniquely provide is the term Evidence Based Medicine.
American Health care System is not now well! Gone are the times when physicians commanded the provision of medical care with nary a question. The Health Care Crisis, the increasing demands for accountability and the involvement of regulators and payers have drastically changed the face of medical care in the United States. The changing environment brought about a great deal of dissatisfaction on all sides. Patients demand the newest advances, physicians feel the obligation to provide them but the regulators press for justification of therapies, scientific validity of treatments and accountability from the physicians and the medical system overall.
What Cancer Treatments Today provides is solid, referenced, authoritative and evidence based information. It is our hope that all the stakeholders in American Health will use the information on CancerTreatmentToday.org to work together on the basis of scientific integrity, mutual responsibility and the sense of compassion. Incorporating evidence based approaches, we believe, is the only way to achieve the type of consensus that will heal American Health Care System and heal us.
Enjoy. We welcome and appreciate your comments.
