How would the BAG IT resource benefit my patients?

The BAG IT resource assists newly-diagnosed cancer patients of any gender, age, or cancer type, at a critical time – right after their diagnosis. It benefits patients receiving all cancer treatments: oral and infused chemo, radiation therapy, surgery, etc. The information is designed to help them and their caregiver/family/friends to cope with their diagnosis, move more competently through the treatment process, empower them to become an active member of the treatment team, and transition to follow up care. BAG IT helps Fight the Fear.
