Radiation Oncology 101 – UNC Cancer Network RN and Allied Health Lecture

Please join the UNC Cancer Network for an online telehealth lecture with Jayne Camporeale, MS, RN, OCN, APRN, and Mary Fleming Knowles, MSN, ANP-C. Radiation therapy can be used alone or in combination with chemotherapy in cancer treatment plans. This discussion will review the different forms of radiation therapy (including Proton Therapy, etc.), how it works, and how it can be used in combination with chemotherapy. Since radiation therapy has its own set of side effects, the speaker will address the most common symptoms (such issues as appetite loss and radiation mucositis) and how to help patients deal with them.
