The University of Michigan Com-
prehensive Cancer Center has
launched a new toll-free cancer in-
formation line staffed by oncology
nurses. The Cancer AnswerLine
provides medically accurate and
personalized answers to the many
questions people have about can-
cer — everything from risk reduc-
tion and detection methods to
treatment options and clinical tri-
"After the shock wears off, one
of the first things many people who
have been diagnosed with cancer
do is gather information about their
illness," says Dr. Max Wicha, di-
rector of the Cancer Center. "But
often they find the information
that's available — either in libraries
and bookstores or from friends and
family -- is confusing, over-
whelming or simply out of date."
The Cancer AnswerLine nurs-
es have at their fingertips contin-
ually updated cancer information
from a database containing
specifics on more than 40 types of (/
cancer and all major treatments.
They also draw from reference
books, brochures and recent sci-
entific and consumer articles.
Printed information developed by
the Cancer Center and organiza-
tions such as the National Cancer
Institute and the American Can-
cer Society is sent to callers at no
"We've tried to create a com-
prehensive resource, not only for '`
people diagnosed with cancer and
their family members who may
need assistance in navigating the
cancer care delivery system, but
also for individuals who want more
information on ways to reduce risk
or what to do if they're worried
they have cancer," says Juanita
Parry, a registered nurse and Can-
cer AnswerLine operator.
Although the Cancer Answer-
Line is primarily an information
service, the nurses advise any
caller who needs to be seen by a
doctor to make an appointment
with his or her physician. If the
caller doesn't have a personal
physician or requests help in lo-
cating one, the nurses provide a re-
ferral based on the caller's needs
"The Cancer AnswerLine serves
as a 'front door,' or single point of
entry, for people to access the Can-
cer Center and its wide range of re-
sources, particularly until our new
building opens in the fall of 1996,"
Dr. Wicha says.
The Cancer AnswerLine nurs-
es can be reached at 1-800-865-
1125 and are available Monday
through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:36-\
p.m. Calls received after hours are
returned the next business day.
