Cancer Care Pocket Guide

The Cancer Care Pocket Guide is a valuable tool to provide general guidance on appropriate practice and to assist with decision-making of trained Registered Nurses (RNs).

Cancer Care Pocket Guide Update

We are pleased to announce that the Nurses’ Cancer Care Pocket Guide has been updated and the 2019 version will soon be launched. The revised guide will include updated treatment information and assessment guides for ImmunoOncology, Palliative Care, Radiation Side Effects and more. In honour of Oncology Nursing Day, every CANO member will receive a print copy of the updated Guide in the mail in the weeks following OND 2019. 

You must be a 2019 CANO member on or before April 5, 2019 to receive the Guide in this way. Please ensure that your mailing address in your membership profile is accurate and up to date.

We wish to thank Teva Oncology Canada for supporting the 2019 update to this Guide and making this print copy possible.
