Onc nurses need your help!

  1. Hi there: wow don't usually find myself here! I am an emergency room RN and I volunteer with a "ChemoAngels" program. It is really fun. I have a new patient and just found out what her treatment is-

    Can someone help me decipher this? and tell me what are the typical issues these patients have (so I can plan some appropriate supportive gifts)

    She has finished whole brain radiation and chemo. Now she is getting "Novalis focused radiation to the brain"

    Mostly what I send is things like CD's, hand lotion, suckers, and such. But I don't know too much about brain cancer, so any suggestions would be appreciated. THANKS
