This is a one-time, 90-minute class where you will be provided with comprehensive information about cancer, types of therapies, and the management of potential side effects of those therapies. We know the diagnosis of cancer affects every aspect of your daily life, understanding why and how to manage these aspects helps you get the best outcomes from your therapy. We strongly believe that treatment education equips patients, family members, and caregivers with the tools needed to get the best outcomes from their recommended cancer therapies. At OCSRI we partner with you to provide these tools. We request that all of our patients and family members and/or caregivers attend one of these classes.
