Services and Initiatives
The Alliance has a library of South Carolina specific cancer information for individuals, patients, caregivers, and health care providers. We also provide funding opportunities to various workgroups who assist them in implementing the objectives and strategies outlined in the five-year cancer plan.
The Alliance offers Patient Workshops in a variety of locations across the state. These workshops are designed for cancer patients and their caregivers. Through these workshops, we aim to provide information on clinical trials, understanding treatment and survivorship care plans, tips on how to live a healthy lifestyle, and various ways to cope with cancer.
The Alliance offers a variety of professional education opportunities each year. Our workgroups form committees to design and implement our Evidence Academies. The Academies are designed to bring the most up-to-date screenings, treatment options, and survivorship issues to South Carolina's health care providers. Some of our upcoming Academies will address best practices in survivorship/clinical care issues, how to design a successful lung cancer screening program, and a variety of other topics.
Each Fall we host an Annual meeting which highlights all of our accomplishments of the previous year, as well as kicking off our upcoming initiatives. During this meeting we also receive an update on the state cancer plan, our funding opportunities, and updated cancer statistics from the South Carolina Central Cancer Registry.
