The following patient education materials have been developed by MASCC Study Groups.
The following educational materials concern management of oral mucositis in patients receiving different kinds of cancer treatment. These Information Sheets are based on a thorough review of the medical literature and reflect the current evidence-based guidelines. The Information Sheets were developed by the MASCC’s Mucositis Study Group in partnership with ISOO. They are intended to improve the lives of oncology patients and focus on prevention and management of the adverse effects of cancer and cancer therapy.
Oral Care Fact Sheets
The MASCC/ISOO Oral Care Study Group and the International Society of Oral Oncology (ISOO) have together created four multilingual Fact Sheets for patients receiving chemotherapy and those undergoing head and neck radiation therapy. These Fact Sheets result from the collaboration of physicians, nurses, dietitians, speech language pathologists, dentists, radiation therapists and social workers committed to supportive care. They are based on systematic reviews and guideline development and 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.
