The diagnosis and management of dogs and cats with cancer have progressed significantly over recent years – with improved diagnostic modalities including CT and MRI, as well as improved treatment modalities including radiation therapy and novel chemotherapy protocols leading to improved patient tolerance to treatments.
This 3-week course will explore the exciting world of nursing the patient with cancer – including diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring your patients!
What's in the Course?
Cancer can be nasty – and both the cancers the treatments for them can be toxic to patients. This week we will discover how to recognise and manage common side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
What’s more, we’ll detail the management of some serious problems caused by cancers themselves – including hyperkalaemia, hypercalcaemia, haemorrhage and tumour lysis syndrome. We’ll conclude with a cheat-sheet on prognostic indicators and mean survival times for many of the common cancers encountered in small animal practice.
