Answer

The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) guidelines for screening, assessment, and management of fatigue in adult cancer survivor [15]  are adapted from National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines for cancer-related fatigue and survivorship, [16] as well as pan-Canadian guidelines for care of cancer-related fatigue. [17] It should be noted that the pan-Canadian guidelines were adapted from the 2009 NCCN guidelines for cancer-related fatigue and the 2007 Oncology Nursing Society guidelines for evidence-based interventions for fatigue during and after cancer and its treatment. Consequently, there are few variations in the recommendations across the guidelines.
