First Day of Treatment

• Sign In

• Will be brought back to the lab for blood work, vital signs, and IV/Port access.

• Then to an Exam Room to see Doctor/NP and review treatment plan in detail,
  physical assessment, and answer any questions.  They will review the possible
  side effects of your therapy and measures to be taken to prevent or ease those
  side effects.

• Then to the infusion room where a nurse will again review the treatment
  plan and side effects prior to starting the treatment.  Treatment infusion times
  vary depending on the drugs given.  During your infusion we have lab top
  tablets that you may watch movies or information you may read to learn more
  about your diagnosis. These tablets are updated daily and are loaded with
  information about all cancer types, side effects and personal tips while
  undergoing treatment.

• Once completed the infusion nurse will give you information about when
  to return to the clinic.
