PATIENT EDUCATION VIDEOS:
Chemotherapy, Radiation and bone marrow transplants

Patients often struggle to retain the overwhelming amount of information provided to the pre- and post- treatment education sessions.

 

We have developed a series of patient education videos led by our virtual nurse Joanne, assisting health services to deliver consistent information about the basics of chemotherapy and bone marrow transplant treatments.

Watch the video below to see what they are all about:

NEW UPDATE! Radiation therapy patient videos now available

Nurses may find it useful to use these videos when offering education to patients receiving chemotherapy or bone marrow transplants in the following settings:

  • Chemotherapy Day Units

  • Symptom Urgent Review Clinics

  • Haematology and Oncology inpatient units

  • Clinical Nurse Coordinators and Consultants
