Oncology nurses and interdisciplinary members can use this booklet to ensure a consistent approach to patient education. This booklet was developed by Vaginal Dilation Working Group of the Canadian Association of Nurses of Oncology (CANO/ACIO) chaired by Lynne Jolicoeur and Joan Hamilton. January 2015.
