RADIATION THERAPY NURSING SUPPORT

Step By Step – we are with you

You will be introduced to the Radiation Therapy Nursing Staff as part of the treating team at one of your initial visits.  They are there to help prepare you before starting radiotherapy and will see you weekly during your radiotherapy treatment together with the radiation therapists.

The nurses provide education to you and your family/carers and can help manage the side effects of your treatment and your medical condition in consultation with medical staff. These  nurses continue to be involved in your long term follow up care in the clinic.

Radiation Therapy Nursing staff are there from the time of your first clinic appointment and with you as an additional resource to the Radiation Therapists during radiotherapy treatment. 

A radiation therapy nurse is always available in the Centre while you are being treated and are on hand to assess your clinical needs.
