Overview

For real time access to all available clinical trials in Georgia by cancer type, please visit…

GeorgiaCancerInfo.org is the only comprehensive source of information on Georgia-based cancer care. A unique, searchable online cancer information center, GeorgiaCancerInfo.org was created by the Georgia Center for Oncology Research and Education (Georgia CORE).

This unique website offers patients and caregivers access to valuable information on cancer care and resources to assist them in making informed decisions about their cancer treatment. Doctors and healthcare professionals can also utilize this new website for the latest information on clinical trials, oncologists, treatment guidelines and cancer treatment sites. GeorgiaCancerInfo.org is a content distribution partner of the National Cancer Institute and has been made possible by our generous sponsors: Emory University Department of Hematology and Medical Oncology, Aflac, Curtis & Elizabeth Anderson Cancer Institute at Memorial University Medical Center, Morehouse School of Medicine, Northside Hospital Cancer Institute, John B. Amos Cancer Center at Columbus Regional Health System, Genentech, Alliant-GMCF and Varian. We are also grateful to our founding partners, the Georgia Research Alliance and GASCO, the Georgia Society of Clinical Oncology.

GeorgiaCancerInfo.org provides the most up-to-date information available through Georgia CORE’s agreements with its research network affiliates and the National Cancer Institute. The website contains searchable profiles of nearly 1,000 Georgia oncologists, details on roughly 600 clinical trials being conducted in the state, and information of about 300 cancer treatment sites in Georgia. Information on cancer care, leading oncology practices, hospitals accredited by the Commission on Cancer, treatment guidelines and patient resources are also available on the website.

Need

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in Georgia; it is estimated that over 47,000 new cancer cases will be diagnosed in Georgia in 2014 and there are more than 400,000 survivors living in the state (American Cancer Society, Cancer Facts and Figures 2013). Each year thousands of patients and survivors search for credible information on the internet to assist them in making critical decisions along their cancer journey. The complexity of care, availability of treatment alternatives, multiplicity of resources and urgency of decision making can feel overwhelming to patients and their families. Leaders of Georgia CORE – oncologists, scientists, educators, nurses and navigators – recognized the need for a reliable and accessible public source of cancer care information to help navigate cancer care. Georgia CORE spent almost two years working with professionals, patients and survivors to create the model online information cancer information center.

Mission and Purpose

The mission of GeorgiaCancerInfo.org is to provide comprehensive, reliable and easily accessible information, tools and resources designed to assist cancer patients and survivors in making informed decisions about cancer care and participating as active partners in their treatment. GeorgiaCancerInfo.org also serves as an important resource for oncologists and healthcare professionals by providing accessible, up-to-date information on available clinical trials, oncologists, cancer centers, treatment guidelines and patient resources. Georgia CORE and its partners aspire to reach every cancer patient in the state with information about GeorgiaCancerInfo.org.
