Patient Materials
The following patient materials have been prepared and peer-reviewed by the radiation therapy clinical educators at BC Cancer. This information is intended to supplement and support the verbal education provided to patients by their radiation therapy care team.

This information does not replace medical counsel by a physician or nurse in the context of individual clinical circumstances.
