Helping Providers Help Their Patients: Using the Radiation Therapy Sheets
Helping Providers Help Their Patients enables you to help your patients understand and manage side effects from radiation therapy. It has tips to help you talk with your patients so they are empowered to take steps to manage side effects and feel better during treatment.
This booklet serves as a companion to NCI’s Radiation Therapy Side Effects Series which gives patients practical information to manage these side effects: diarrhea, fatigue, hair loss, mouth and throat changes, nausea and vomiting, sexuality and fertility (men), sexuality and fertility (women), skin changes, and urination changes.
The information in this booklet was last updated in April 2007.
