Understanding Your Treatment

The Patient Pathway

The usual pathway for patients receiving radiation therapy has seven steps. This section covers the seven steps and what to expect before, during and after treatment.

Each patient will receive their own copy of 'My Treatment Book' which contains important information specific to your treatment such as who will be taking care of you, what possible side effects may occur and how to manage these. Please bring this booklet with you during your treatment with ARO, including appointments with your radiation oncologist, treatment visits and other appointments at ARO. Note pages are at the back of your booklet so you can write special instructions, or raise any questions or concerns you may have during your treatment at ARO.
