Radiation Oncology Handouts

The Radiation Oncology set of Handouts for Head and Neck Cancer sufferers were developed by the combined Speech Pathology and Nutrition Departments of The Alfred, Monash Medical Centre and Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre to assist in addressing the issues of Oral Hygiene, Dysphagia and Nutrition.

We would like to acknowledge the contribution of the Southern Metropolitan Integrated Cancer Service (SMICS) who provided the grant that enabled us to work collaboratively towards the development of these handouts.

SMICS is one of several  Integrated Cancer Services developed in response to a Ministerial Taskforce for Cancer initiative. The Integrated Cancer Services are working towards development of consistent Statewide Cancer Services for cancer sufferers and there families.
