The digital ACS Patient Education Toolkit—featuring trusted, evidence-based, and easily accessible information from the ACS, National Cancer Institute (NCI), and National Institutes of Health (NIH)—is available for purchase. This customizable point-of-care surgical education resource is designed to help patients understand procedures, make informed decisions, and confidently manage their perioperative experience.
The Toolkit comes in two editions: Provider and Hospital. The Provider Toolkit includes patient education content for general, colorectal, pediatric, thoracic, and vascular surgery, while the Hospital Toolkit, designed for centers with multiple providers, currently is available for general surgery and breast cancer.
Upon enrolling, you will receive a unique website address that is personalized with your name and loaded with helpful information relevant to your surgical specialty. More than 200 resources within the Toolkit are available to display on your website or share with patients via text, email, or printed material.
All editions of the Toolkit feature ACS procedure brochures, surgical cancer training materials, and skill-based videos, as well as content from the NIH, NCI, and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. Customizable content also is available, and site usage data are monitored to provide insight on how the Toolkit is being used.
