Well done for getting to the end of week 1. We hope you have learned something new from our videos and articles on radiation therapy.

This week we have:

  • Identified myths and facts related to radiation therapy treatment.
  • Discussed the roles of healthcare professionals involved in radiation therapy.
  • Explored the radiation therapy treatment pathway.

Next week we will be exploring the science behind radiation therapy, how prostate and head and neck cancer are managed with radiation therapy, and what happens after radiation therapy.

Now that you have finished week 1, take a minute to think about one new piece of information you have learned and share it in the comments.
