Patient Care Team
The Patient Care Team comprises of fully qualified and experienced nurses and/or radiation therapists. Their responsibility is to support patients throughout the patient pathway.
We understand that receiving radiation therapy can be scary. Patient education specialists are part of this team and help patients better understand their treatment plan, explain how radiation is being applied and possible side effects. Each patient usually meets with the patient education specialist at orientation (pre-treatment planning), during treatment and the last week of treatment.
Our patient care team may also support patients that require dressings or other nursing care.
Patients are welcome to contact the patient care team to answer questions or concerns up to two weeks following the last treatment. By having an understanding your treatment plan this can help alleviate anxiety.
