Patient Education: 

Please visit the following sites for more cancer-related information: 

Cancer Care Ontario - Patient Resources: On this page you will find links to patient resources on Cancer Care Ontario’s website, as well as links to other sources of frequently requested cancer information. This information is provided to help inform patients, their families and caregivers so that they can become more involved in care decisions and supported at every step of the way.

 

How to manage your symptoms- guides for patients: If you have cancer you may get side effects from treatment or symptoms from the cancer.  Cancer Care Ontario has created 10 patient guides to help you and your loved ones manage your symptoms.

The guides are filled with easy to understand, practical tips for what you should do and when to get help from your healthcare team.  Information in the guides is not medical advice. Please discuss your side effects and symptoms with your healthcare team.
