CheckPoint 2: Cancer Patient Information Sheet
· Resources: American Cancer Society (ACS) Web site at http://www.cancer.org and the
National Cancer Institute (NCI) Web site at http://www.cancer.gov
· Due Date: Day 5 [Individual] forum
· Create a patient information sheet for a type of cancer of your choice, using either
Microsoft® Word or PowerPoint®. Refer to the American Cancer Society and the National
Cancer Institute Web sites for information on your selected form of cancer.
· Present the information in 250 to 300 words. Your goal is to educate a wide range of
individuals who vary in age, reading level, and socioeconomic status. Be mindful of
unique characteristics associated with the affected population. Because you have a
limited word count, be brief and choose your words carefully. Be creative in your layout
while maintaining a professional appearance.
· Organize the information into five sections:
o Causes and risk factors
o Prevention, detection, and diagnosis techniques
o How the cancer affects the body
o Treatment options and side effects
o Name and contact information of at least one support group
· Include at least one image (picture or diagram) that supports any of the details you
present in the patient information sheet. Include an APA-formatted citation for the image.
· Post your patient information sheet as an attachment
