February Focus: Chemotherapy & Radiation

February Focus: Chemotherapy & Radiation

Throughout the month of February our training focus will be on chemotherapy and radiation, which are the most effective ways to treat many different types of cancer. You have likely taken patients to these type of appointments already, but this month we will provide more information about what these treatments do, why they are beneficial and what to expect when your patients are undergoing these treatments.

Chemotherapy and radiation patients usually require frequent transports for therapy, so you will most likely see them regularly during the course of their treatment. To learn more about each type of treatment as well as how to take the best care of your patients, go to the Virtual Classroom on Traumasoft and complete the Chemotherapy and Radiation Exam.

Our desire to know as much as possible about cancer, those who have it and how we can help fight it fit right in with World Cancer Day, which took place on Feb. 4. If you’d like to learn how to dispel the many cancer myths, check out WorldCancerDay.org.
