    I feel that a reliable online and easily accessible data base that can help cancer patients and their families gather pertinent information is a big plus. There has been a shift in the role of patient and physician. The current trend in cancer treatment is for patients to be participants in the design of their treatment. Patients often do their own research concerning therapy. The PDQ from NCI can be very helpful in this regard by providing accurate and current information.
