How to Care for Yourself During Head and Neck Radiation

Members of the International Society of Oral Oncology and Oral Care Study Group have created these multilingual Fact Sheets for patients receiving chemotherapy and those undergoing head and neck radiation therapy. These Fact Sheets are the result of years of work within the ISOO and the Oral Care Study Group. They were created by a network of physicians, nurses, dietitians, speech language pathologists, dentists, radiation therapists and social workers committed to supportive care. Based on systematic reviews and guideline development, the Fact Sheets reflect up-to-date, evidenced-based recommendations for managing the oral complications of cancer therapy, as well as the most current thinking about knowledge translation and delivery to patients.

The large translation effort was carried out by ISOO members around the world, and all of the resulting Fact Sheets have been validated by each translation team. ISOO is grateful to its members for their collaborative efforts in making possible this translation of research into clinical practice and patient care. The Fact Sheets are meant to be personalized by each cancer center that uses them. ISOO wishes to promote such use to build relationships and collaborations globally at the institutional  level. Supportive Care in cancer makes excellent cancer possible!
