CPEN Print on Demand Program

Need NCI booklets? Join the CPEN Print on Demand Program! 
Are patient education materials too costly to print on your own? The CPEN Print on Demand Program allows educators to order NCI patient education booklets at reduced prices at any time. There is no deadline for ordering but a minimum order of 10 copies is required. 

Featured publications include:

  • Chemotherapy and You
  • Radiation Therapy and You

For years, cancer centers and organizations relied on National Cancer Institute (NCI) booklets to provide quality patient education materials to patients and families. Due to budget cuts, NCI was unable to continue printing publications in bulk. As a result, in 2013, the Cancer Patient Education Network (CPEN) took the initiative to create the CPEN Print on Demand Program. This program allows people to purchase NCI booklets at a reduced rate by partnering with a commercial printer.
CPEN developed this initiative in response to CPEN members concerns that they would no longer be able to provide these excellent and essential NCI booklets to their patients and families. CPEN as an organization receives no financial benefit from this initiative.
