A well-organized start
As you enter chemotherapy, it is important to plan and be prepared. Keeping your treatment on track will be a team effort!
Your healthcare team might consist of a surgeon, a radiation specialist, a medical oncologist or haematologist (a physician who specializes in giving chemotherapy), and an oncology or haematology nurse. Other advisors are available as needed. These may include a dietician, a social worker, psychologist, pharmacist and others. All are specifically trained to assist patients with cancer.
