This section of the eviQ website provides information for people having cancer treatment and their carers, families and friends.
eviQ provides a corresponding patient information sheet for every cancer treatment protocol available on the website. These are generally given to you by your doctor, nurse or pharmacist to explain about your cancer treatment. If you know the name of your treatment you can find the patient information sheet by clicking on the links below.
Anticancer drugs are drugs used to treat cancer. They include chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy and hormone therapy and may be used before or after surgery or radiotherapy.
Radiation therapy is the use of high energy x-rays to treat cancer and is sometimes called external beam radiation therapy (EBRT). Radiation therapy can be used to treat primary or advanced cancer.
