Patient Education Resources

Given the various side effects associated with systemic therapy, the risk of associated oncologic emergencies and the challenges patients have adhering to their oral systemic therapy and/or other medications, providing effective patient teaching is essential.

Cancer Care Nova Scotia has developed a number of resources to support health professionals to provide effective patient teaching: 

    o Oral Systemic Therapy Patient Education: a Guide for Health Professionals 
    o Systemic Therapy Patient Teaching Checklist [under development]
    o Oral Chemotherapy: a Guide for Patients and Families | Print Instructions 
    o Cytotoxic Precautions at Home: a Guide for Patients and Families 
    o Living Well with Cancer 
    o Medication Information Sheet
